We will start with a consideration of copyright law, because the fact that something is on the internet does not mean it's free for the taking. What is copyrightable, the fair use of newsworthy information and embedding and aggregation of content will all be discussed. We will also talk about ways in which the law treats online speech differently from traditional media, including the ramifications of Sec. 230 of the Communications Decency Act (CDA), the Digital Millenium Copyright Act and the role of social media platforms.
