Law2sm’s Monthly Recap 01/01/16 – Stories Relating to Social Media & the Law


Happy 2016! Welcome to our monthly recap of stories relating to Social Media and the Law. This month recap’s stories cover many issues including: EU law to kick out teens under 16 from social media; workplace bullying; crime & social media punishment; Grumpy Cat in IP spat; ethical issues in lawyer’s use of social media; social media compliance isn’t fun but is necessary; social media issues for community bankers; the future of mobile identity; and more.

These are some of the articles, reports, posts, etc. that caught our attention this month. We originally send them out through our twitter account @law2sm, so follow us to get them as we find them. But many of them are such great resources we don’t want you to miss them, so we’ve decided to put them as a weekly recap. The links will take you to their original sources, whether Mashable, Lexology, and/or others. Enjoy and let us know some of the stories you’ve found interesting this time around. Just share in the comments below. Have a great week!

WIS Bankers Education Series

In this month’s Banker Education Series webinar we’ll offer attendees an overview of some of the legal issues relating to the use of technology and social media that bankers need to be aware going into 2016. Do you know what the new trends are or how your bank may be affected – legally and socially? If you’re not sure, then you’ll want to reserve your seat today (and don’t forget your questions).
