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).
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.
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
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?”
