Untitled Extract PagesThe growing use of social media has created challenges for federal securities regulators and, given the significance of social media as a preferred method of communication for a large percentage of market participants, the need to adapt Federal securities laws and the regulatory framework applicable to broker-dealers and investment advisers to social media channels has become all the more urgent.

To help navigate these issues, Socially Aware contributors and Morrison & Foerster partners Jay Baris and David Lynn have just released their Guide to Social Media and Securities Law, which provides a comprehensive overview of how federal regulation of securities has evolved in the face of the growing use of social media by investors, securities issuers, broker-dealers, investment advisers and investment companies.

The guide is now available here. We think that you will find it to be a terrific resource.
