Legal Issues in Web 2.0 
to be held at
The Dome, 14 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2PF
Wednesday, 24th March 2010, 09.30 - 16.30

Course Outline
Find out the legal issues raised by using Web 2.0 applications in libraries and information centres. Blogs, wikis, YouTube, podcasts, Slideshare, Flickr, Connotea, Facebook, Second Life and Twitter all raise legal problems for those managing them or using them. This workshop will look at the reality of Web 2.0: what causes problems and how to assess risks.  

The course will start with a brief overview of Web 2.0 and what it means. It will then look in more detail at how Web 2.0 activities can cause legal problems. These potential problems include:

*	Defamation
*	Data protection and privacy
*	Pornography and other illegal materials
*	Copyright, database right, moral rights and performers rights
*	Accessibility
*	Contract and employment law
*	E-security
*	Freedom of Information
*	Conflict of law and international jurisdictions
*	The liability of the hosting organisation

There will be an in-depth discussion on identifying and managing risks. The course will include exercises based on scenarios for discussion, and all the presentations will be available electronically. Attendees are encouraged to exchange ideas and experiences with each other.

Who should attend?
This course is aimed at anyone using Web 2.0 applications and those responsible for managing Web 2.0 services.
