According to the latest salary report, content creation is a major part of many PR professionals’ roles. But even when working at pace, it is important to ensure your legal obligations are not sidelined. Recent developments you may not be aware of could have serious implications for reputation – and threaten significant financial penalties for your organisation.

Find out about your obligations when working with media, managing social media and creating content. We’ll cover:

  • What you need to know about the tightening rules around influencer advertising.
  • Media partnerships – is your content misleading?
  • The case that put social media comments in the spotlight and suggests 'keyboard warriors' could become your new nightmare.
  • Defamation – when does fact or opinion become defamation? What about freedom of speech?

This live webinar, run by Bell Gully legal experts Tania Goatley and Kristin Wilson, will be full of examples of when these issues should be considered and how they may affect your company or agency in its day-to-day business.
