Social Media & Web 2.0: Striking the Right Balance
In today’s digital landscape, companies are increasingly engaging with customers via their brands and employees both in person and from “behind the internet curtain.” This increased engagement creates opportunities to enhance brand penetration and increase collaboration. However, it also poses serious challenges for IP counsel working to protect the company brand and content. Striking the right balance is critical.

This Panel Will Explore:
• Weighing brand strategy & business goals against the need for protection and enforcement
• Strategies for monitoring social media
• Copyright: the right of control
• Internal: owned by the brand
• External: customer or peer authorship
• Trademark: brands, logos & tag lines
