Everybody’s a Publisher: How Nonprofits Can Minimize Legal Risks When Using Websites, Social Media, and Email Jay Ward Brown, Ballard Spahr LLP Wednesday, May 29, 5:30 – 8:30 pm Your nonprofit most likely has a website and uses social media and email campaigns to share your mission and raise funds. While technology makes it easier to stay in close contact with your members and stakeholders, it can also raise risk management issues. From copyright infringement for pictures on your website to misuse of email for marketing purposes to websites that are not accessible to users with different abilities – claims are on the rise. Join us to assess some of the key risks facing your organization. We will be sharing suggestions for best practices including what you should ask your insurance broker about your organization’s coverage for such claims. The discussion will be led by Jay Ward Brown, a partner in the national law firm Ballad Spahr LLP who lives in Rappahannock County, and whose practice is focused on representing national news and entertainment companies as well as NGOs, nonprofits, and other “non-traditional” publishers in copyright, defamation, and other First Amendment matters. Target Audience: All nonprofit staff and board members Program attendance is complimentary for board, staff and volunteers of organizations operating within the PATH Foundation service area (northern Culpeper, Fauquier and Rappahannock counties). For participants from other organizations, a $25 charge applies.
