Today’s guest has built a strong personal brand around his special skill for navigating the digital and social media landscape from a legal perspective.
Lawyer Paul Gordon is frequently contacted about and tagged in questions such as “Can I post this…?” “What should I do about…?” “Is it okay to…?” and more.
So in this episode we discuss the three questions Paul is most commonly asked regarding the legal aspects of online marketing and activity, and the one topic he wishes people would ask about more…
This episode explores:
  • Copyright law, including the difference between the US’s Fair Use and Australia’s Fair Dealing laws
  • Reposting content
  • Who must take responsibility for what’s posted on and about an online account
  • What constitutes online defamation
  • Privacy
and more.
Paul also shares with us what he is learning at the moment, and his one tip to help you be prepared to do your best online.
