From check-ins at restaurants to pictures of milestones, we document our lives on social media now more than ever. But what happens to the content we share on Facebook, Instagram and other social channels after we pass away? Who owns that content and who has the right to decide how we live on digitally? While most of us assume we own what we post, the terms of service we agree to often mean more than we may realize.
Join us on Wednesday, February 27th to explore how much control these social platforms, your loved ones and other social media users can have over your digital assets when you die. We’ll hear Michelle Koufman, J.D., LL.M., Partner at Davis, Pickren, Seydel & Sneed, LLP break down this interesting intersection of law, technology, and social media.
6:00 – 7:00 – Networking, Food, Drinks
7:00 – 8:00 – Speaker Presentation
8:00 – 9:00 – Audience Q&A and Networking
