The rapid expansion of the use of social networking sites like
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and MySpace has profound implications on a
corporation’s ability to protect its intellectual property. The common
and casual use of these sites makes it very easy for employees to leak,
many times unintentionally, proprietary information. As counsel for a
corporation, you must be prepared to guide your clients in the
formation of sound and enforceable policies to protect control of its
intellectual property. This invaluable manual examines the potential
pitfalls caused by use of social networking sites, and provides
strategies to protect your client’s intellectual property portfolio.
