In the wake of the SEC's recent Section 21(a) report regarding Netflix, many are wondering what types of social media activities are now permissible - and which are not. This panel will run through a number of hypotheticals to illustrate not only what might be legally permissible - but also what might be an effective investor relations strategy. Join these experts:

  • Joe Hall, Partner, Davis Polk & Wardwell
  • Darrell Heaps, CEO, Q4 Web Systems
  • Dominic Jones, Editor, IR Web Report
  • Dave Lynn, Editor, TheCorporateCounsel.net & Partner, Morrison & Forester LLP
  • Brad Owens, Assistant General Counsel, Zillow

Among the topics of this program are:

  • Parsing specific examples to determine how social media can be most effective - and legally permissible.
  • How does a "social media disclosure" model work? How does it differ from traditional communication methods?
  • What are examples of companies using social media?
  • What compliance issues should companies be aware of as they move towards using social media to communicate with investors?
