Book - softbound

Legal Results: Social Media offers a key selection of material on the use of social media, in particular expectations of privacy and claims of free expression. This pamphlet provides a general introduction to the topic, as well as more in-depth examinations of the legal issues typically surrounding the use of social media.

The reader will find an in-depth analysis regarding the expectation of privacy in and discovery of social networking website postings and communications around the country. Exploring the question of how much free expression one can afford in social media, the volume contains country-wide analysis on the validity of adverse personnel actions, as well as the validity of actions affecting a student's academic standing, based on social media use.

One step further on the question of what constitutes free expression, the title sheds light on available causes of action for defamation alleged in the context of public video online sites such as Skype® or YouTube®, and includes a discussion of necessary proof in cases claiming cyberstalking and cyberbullying – all actions that have at times been characterized as free expression of the actor under scrutiny.
