The latest issue of our Socially Aware newsletter is now available here.

In this issue of Socially Aware, our Burton Award-winning guide to the law and business of social media, we summarize the current status of various state laws restricting employer access to the personal social media accounts of applicants and employees; we explore how driving while wearing Google Glass is butting up against the law, and examine recent attempts to legislate the use of Glass on the road; we report on various approaches U.S. courts are taking to address social media-related discovery challenges and to avoid social media fishing expeditions; we take a look at the legal landscape of so-called “revenge porn” and the laws victims are leveraging (or may be able to leverage in the future) in order to fight back; we discuss how UK and European copyright law is being applied to common Internet social and business practices, including the most basic of online activities—hyperlinking; and we highlight a puzzling recent Ninth Circuit decision that has operators of online video services and copyright experts alike scratching their respective heads.
