TORONTO, April 12, 2012 /CNW/ - On June 21-22, Toronto will host The Canadian Institute's first ever course on Managing Legal Risks in Running Online Contests. As more contests are being run online through social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, promotions lawyers are asking for greater guidance on how they can remain compliant with contest rules. This course offers the in-depth guidance they require to manage and minimize all of the legal and business risks associated with online promotions.
Present throughout this two-day program are legal counsel representing high-profile companies who have their own real-world strategies to share, including Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, PepsiCo, Capital One, Tim Hortons, and MasterCard to name a few.
Highlights from the event include:
- A keynote address on the recent SCC Richard v. Time Inc. decision by the plaintiff's counsel
- A complete guide to running promotions through Facebook and Twitter
- A hands-on pre-conference workshop on drafting model contest documents
- Practical strategies for running a compliant mobile/text promotion
- A bonus interactive session on managing promotions gone wrong and the ensuing PR fallout
