Social Media and Internet Law – Forms and Precedents
From Twitter and Facebook to online contests and privacy issues, the legal landscape surrounding social media and the Internet is changing and evolving more quickly than ever, and it's critical for legal professionals' knowledge to keep pace. This new volume from LexisNexis Canada, Social Media and Internet Law – Forms and Precedents, is filled with the practical advice and information that will enable you to do precisely that.
As stated in the introduction to this new publication, "legal issues always follow innovation" and this is particularly true where technology is concerned. Social Media and Internet Law – Forms and Precedents covers a wide range of important, and sometimes controversial, domestic and international IP and IT issues that relate to social media and the Internet, providing insight, commentary and valuable precedents to help practitioners get a handle on the topics and questions that most affect their clients.
With chapters authored by industry-leading experts, this resource offers useful checklists, forms and precedents for Internet-related matters that can arise in everything from employment law and litigation to e-commerce and cloud computing.
An Accessible Format
This publication is available in a handy format which includes a CD-Rom containing the forms and precedents to allow for practitioners to tailor them for their individual needs, rather than creating them from scratch, saving valuable time and money.
An Invaluable Reference

- Lawyers who want to be able to provide their clients with the most up-to-date and relevant information about social media and Internet issues as they relate to their matters
