Bone McAllester Norton Stephen J. Zralek will discuss steps and precautions to take to keep yourself—and your business—out of legal trouble in the social media sphere when he speaks to Father Ryan High School’s Alumni Association at Ryan Connections on Thursday, Oct. 17. “Averting a Social Media Nightmare” will highlight recent examples of social media disasters in hope that others can learn from their lesson. Stephen will give some good rules for the road and will help audience members spot issues ranging from online defamation and malicious reviews, copyright infringement and creating shields against liability to endorsements, employment issues and protecting children’s privacy online.
Stephen was among the first attorneys to embrace social media within his own practice and to identify social media as comprising its own niche in the law. As a thought leader in Social Media Law and in Intellectual Property, Stephen is routinely called on by businesses and other attorneys for guidance in these constantly-shifting arenas.
Stephen was born and raised in Nashville. He is a 1990 graduate of Father Ryan.
