Painful Social Media Traps: Lessons from Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande


Every modern business must have a social media presence. However, many companies find out the hard way that corporate social media comes with harsh restrictions – which are very different from personal social media use. Use of music, images, photographs, brand identifies, and celebrity names and likenesses can be costly. Kim Kardashian was just awarded a $3 million judgment; Ariana Grand just sued Forever21 for $10 million; and Michael Jordan was famously awarded over $10 million in similar case.

This workshop will address critical issues facing all businesses in navigating the deceptively complex world of social media usage.

This workshop will be led by internationally renowned startup Mentor Mitchell Shelowitz, Managing Partner of SLG. Mitch has advised public and private, start-up and mature companies, on critical IP issues that every business must embrace on their social media platforms – whether it relates to music, images, photographs, brands identifies, and celebrities.
