Keep up with the rapidly changing rules—and learn how to keep your magazine out of court.

Photo rights. Facebook and Pinterest pages. Sweepstakes. Sponsored content. Interns. These days, editors have more to worry about than just libel. So if your public relations team wants to put you on TV, your marketing department wants to repurpose your content, your competitors are stealing your stories, your sources want to approve their quotes, and your summer recruits are itching to sue—ASME's annual Legal Briefing for Magazine Editors is for you.

Business Law for Magazine Editors (Morning Session) Topics include: Negotiating state-of-the-art contracts with employees, freelancers and vendors; protecting your copyright and trademarks online; five rules for conducting promotions and events; talent and celebrity contributor agreements; guidelines for mobile content and apps; why you should revisit your privacy policy; and whether it's still safe to use interns
Journalism Law for Magazine Editors (Afternoon Session) Topics include: What to watch for when repurposing content; using celebrity names and photos; defamation by tweet (and other social media perils); six guidelines for publishing reader-submitted material; common-sense rules for policing the hazy "fair use" line; and what you need to know about Europe's privacy laws
