Digital Editor's Network Legal Briefing Oct 7th
What legal risks are newspapers and media organisations taking as they expand on to an ever increasing array of new media platforms?
Blogs, comment boards, forums, digital archives, links to third party content and the speed of breaking news online are all providing us with fresh legal challenges as we straddle the divide between traditional media and online communities.
I am pleased to say that we will be having some high profile speakers from media law experts Wiggin LLP at our next meeting on October 7th to look at some of these issues.
Caroline Kean, Wiggin’s head of litigation, will lead the discussion at the Digital Editors’ Network meeting at UCLan in Preston.Caroline is a vastly experienced media lawyer who acts for national and regional newspapers, magazines, book publishers, television and film companies.
She has been acclaimed as one of the UK's top female solicitors and is vice president of the Media Society and legal advisor to Women in Journalism.
She will be joined by Phil Gorski, from Wiggin’s litigation team. Phil has extensive experience in advising on pre-publication/compliance matters and is part of the training team.
The Digital Editors’ Network will also include a showcase of new ideas from around the regional media. More details on that to follow. For more details and to book a place email firstname.lastname@example.org The meeting will start at 1.30pm.
The Digital Editors’ Network is a free event supported by the journalism department at UCLan, Preston.
