2001 Legal Update Seminar for Magazine Editors
In an increasingly competitive marketplace, print and online magazine editors carefully watching their bottom line need to be alert to, familiar with, and able to take steps to avoid or minimize potential claims, liabilities, and litigation defense costs. To provide a useful overview of and increase sensitivity to such critical matters, on January 16, 2001, ASME will present the latest edition of its popular seminar on recent legal developments affecting magazine editors. Our speaker will again be Lawrence Savell, Counsel in the New York office of the law firm Chadbourne & Parke LLP.
Mr. Savell advises and represents magazine and book publishers, website operators, and other media and e-commerce clients on legal matters including libel, privacy, First Amendment, trademark, copyright, contract, advertising, negligence, and products liability law. He has written and been quoted frequently on these subjects in leading media trade journals. In an up-to-date, practical, and non-legalese presentation, Mr. Savell will discuss a comprehensive range of legal issues affecting magazines, including the following:
Questions will be welcome throughout the presentation as well as afterwards, encouraging open and informal discussion and interaction. Mr. Savell again invites attendees to submit in advance via e-mail (to email@example.com) specific questions or concerns, which he will address in his presentation if they are determined to be of interest to the entire audience.
An extensive updated handout will be provided for you to keep for your ongoing reference, addressing in greater detail many of the subjects discussed in the seminar.
