Olshan Frome Wolosky LLP today announced that Andrew B. Lustigman, partner and chair of the firm’s Advertising Marketing & Promotions practice will speak at the 110th American Association of Law Schools (AALS) Annual Meeting to be held Wednesday, January 6 through Sunday, January 10, 2016 in New York.

"AALS members face many of the same issues as my clients in sorting out acceptable limits and content in promoting their brand through social media, and I look forward to a lively discussion with my fellow panelists on this timely topic,” he continued.

Andy will be speaking as part of the Section on Institutional Advancement in a Communications Track session on Sunday, January 10, 2016 from 10:45 AM to 12:15 PM titled, “Copyrights, Trademarks and Fair Use of Social Media Content: What's Fair Game and What's Off Limits for Communications Practitioners?”  The session is geared toward communications professionals at law schools and will address fair use and copyright law when dealing with social media content. Andy and fellow panelists will discuss acceptable and unacceptable practices in using publicly available social media content for communications and marketing efforts, and will provide an update on rapidly evolving substantive laws and best practices, along with examples of real world scenarios. The panel will provide valuable insights for both law school marketing and communications professionals and faculty members specializing in copyright law, fair use and social media issues.

Andy represents marketers, advertisers, media, mobile and Internet companies in connection with the legal aspects of their advertising and promotional marketing business, including clearance of advertising and marketing materials, sweepstakes, games of skill, and other contests, and social media programs, and advises on digital marketing campaigns, intellectual property issues, and privacy matters. An equally significant portion of his practice involves investigations and litigation brought by regulatory agencies regarding national advertising campaigns, as well as defending private consumer individual and class action lawsuits.

The AALS Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of law faculty in the world and is an unparalleled opportunity for legal educators to connect with colleagues from different law schools and countries around matters of common interest.  Click here for information on programs and registration.
