Key Updates on Defamation and Social Media – Ontario Bar Association
Associate Emma Romano will serve as Program Co-chair for Key Updates on Defamation and Social Media, a webcast-only session hosted by the Ontario Bar Association’s Entertainment, Media & Communications Law Program, on Monday, November 28th. Partner Andrew MacDonald will also be present as a program speaker.
An increasing proportion of our daily lives – both work and personal – takes place online. Individuals and corporations spend time, effort, and dollars to carefully cultivate their reputations on social media. As litigators this means more phone calls about defamation on social media platforms, as people and businesses are concerned about maintaining their online reputation and about freely expressing themselves in the digital town square.
Join the OBA’s Entertainment, Media and Communications Law and Civil Litigation Sections for a joint program providing key updates on defamation claims online. The lunch hour program will address recent case law developments – including around the interpretation of anti-SLAPP legislation, damages, and the liability of third-party intermediaries – and practical tips for assessing, bringing, and defending online defamation claims.
