On Tuesday, June 28, Karolina Brekken-Hoerl and Martha Engel will present “Content Creators and the Law – How TikTok, Instagram and Others Are Impacting Your Clients” as part of Minnesota CLE’s June Webcast Extravaganza. This session will look at this evolving area of the law, and help attorneys spot issues for clients who create content or have content for their business generated and shared on social media platforms. It will also address concerns about the removal of content that was created by a client but shared without authorization by others on these platforms.
As more people continue to generate income as social media influencers and in other, non-traditional ways, issues of intellectual property assets will become more prevalent as they collide with different disciplines of the law. In March, Karolina and Martha presented “The Intersection of Family Law and Intellectual Property Law: What to Watch For” at Minnesota CLE’s 2022 Family Law Institute. There, they discussed the potential IP issues at play when representing a business owner, content creator or brand, and how to best advise clients on preserving their products, processes, or ideas.
