I am honored to be part of an upcoming conference, Social Media: Risks & Rewards, to be held Sept. 21 at the Harvard Club of New York City. Presented by Corporate Counsel magazine and Incisive Media, the day-long program is designed for corporate counsel and other lawyers with an interest in protecting a company’s business, brands and IP online.

There is a great line-up of speakers and programs covering such topics as corporate policies for social media, protecting a company’s identity in a virtual world, IP and social media, regulation and social media, and social media best practices.

I am serving as chairperson for the program and also will be on a panel discussing intellectual property issues together with Valerie L. Boccadoro, senior IP counsel for Toys R Us, and Lesley Rosenthal, vice president, general counsel and secretary of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

And now for that discount I promised you: To get $100 off the registration price, go to www.corpcounsel.com/socialmedia and use the code SPK. I look forward to seeing you there.
