Playing Around with the New Snap Spectacles

These are the new #Snap second-generation #Spectacles. I can’t wait to test out the HD video and photos during my next beach run (you are following me at running.lawyer right?)

I just shared a short video over at my LegalMinds Mastermind.

While I’m not sure if my jurors, judge, and opposing counsel, are ready right now to let me share my inside the courtroom trial experiences with you on Snap, please rest assured that when they are, it’s “game on” 😉

Join me for more pics and videos over on Snap (I’m CA_Lawyer)

My Interview with James Publishing (we shared massive value for all the lawyers in the world!)

I enjoyed being interviewed earlier this week by Travis Hise and Kara Prior of James Publishing. It’s always fun to have the opportunity to share social media and digital tips to help other lawyers build their brand and make an impact using social media.

The 7 Legal and Business Ethics of Twitter Marketing

I really enjoyed Thursday’s #TwitterSmarter Twitter Chat and post-show Facebook Live with Madalyn Sklar. The topic revolved around “The 7 Legal and Business Ethics of Twitter Marketing” (Twitter summary with questions and answers here) and then we did a post show follow-up via  Facebook Live immediately thereafter (click here or watch below).

 

Why Podcasters and Livestreamers Should Use “Interview Agreements”

Do you interview guests on live video or podcasts? Are you using a pre-interview Agreement?

On this week’s episode of the LegalHour.live, my co-host and fellow attorney, Joey Vitale, and I explained why you need to use pre-interview agreements and also the exact clauses you should include in your agreements.

______________________

Show Notes:

Podcast and Livevideo Pre-Interview Agreement Clauses:

1. Identify parties to the agreement.
2. Scope and nature of show.
3. Live, recording and repurposing rights.
4. Promotion and marketing rights.
5. Revenue and distribution rights.
6. Dispute resolution and venue

We know this stuff is complicated. Reach out to Joey or yours truly with any questions. Also, please share this episode if you found it useful. The direct link for the recorded show is here.

Legal Issues When Recording Conversations, Live Videos and Podcasts

Can you legally monitor (listen in) or record someone else during a telephone call, podcast or live video show? I share my thoughts, and tips, in the above 2 minute video.

My advice for my fellow livestreamers is to always get the express permission of your guest(s) to record and use the podcast or live video conversation. Sure, you can always argue that it was implied that you had permission to record the private or public interview or conversation but written permission (text or email confirmation) is the best way to document consent, especially in a two-party state.

After watching this video, see if you know the answer to the following question: “You are in California and you interview a guest located in New York on your podcast or live video show. Do the laws of a one-party or two-party state apply?”
