Engaging with the New Media – how to protect reputations and respond to abuse

2.4 billion people worldwide now have access to the internet. For practitioners and clients alike, this provides both opportunities and risks.

While we often talk about the growth of the so called “social media” this is only one part of a much wider trend . The “new media” encompasses on-demand and interactive access to content – this material is available everywhere and at anytime on the device of your choice. It is disseminated through an array of new tools – blogs, independent websites, “raw” newscasting, Google searches, youtube, …….the list goes on!

Barrister Josh McBride and I will be dealing with these issues in a seminar put on by the Auckland District Law Soc on 6 August. The session will be chaired by Stephen Mills QC.

Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
