Social Media.

Bespoke is expert at advising on the numerous risk and governance issues arising from the use of social media both by the business, and personal use by staff. The ease with which information can reach an almost limitless audience, via social media channels, is the key attraction, yet it can present itself as a minefield and key source of risk.

Intellectual property, privacy and defamation

Given the ability to easily post and disseminate information online (such as via social media or blogs) or ‘regram’ Instagram photos, together with their potenitally endless audience reach, it is no surprise that there is a rapid rise of claims in this area. We have experience in dealing with intellectual property infringement claims, defamation claims or privacy issues, arising as a result of online publications (such as social media, blogs or instagram).

As with other forms of intellectual property, we recognise the importance of registration of social media handles in order to enhance the value of your asset portfolio. In this respect, we provide a comprehensive range of domain name services from searching, registration, enforcement, dispute resolution and portfolio management.

Employment

It is inevitable that employees will use social media and will often do so to express grievances, derogatory or unsavoury comments about their employer or other third parties. Rigorous social media clauses in employment agreements and the implementation of a Social Media Policy for all employees will minimise the risks to the business (including the risk of being vicariously liable for employee’s conduct via social media, even if outside working hours). A Social Media Policy is a vital workplace tool so that everyone understands their rights and responsibilities when it comes to using social media. Bespoke has experience in drafting Social Media Policies, social media clauses in contracts and also in advising on social media processes.
