Learn the Ropes . . . But Watch the Lines

A local court's decision to jail one of the parties in a contentious divorce for his Facebook post about his estranged wife reminds us that, although free speech and social media may be empowering, they come with consequences. Use the technology; know your rights; but learn, too, where the lines are drawn -libelous or disparaging statements, unfair or deceptive advertising, infringement of copyrights, trademark, or publicity rights - responsibility for knowing what you can and cannot say falls finally on you.
