Understanding Social Media Law

Social media law operates at the intersection of the digital world and legal regulations, catering to the unique challenges and opportunities presented by platforms like TikTok and other social media sites. As online interactions and user-generated content have surged, so has the complexity surrounding issues of defamation, intellectual property rights, and platform-specific guidelines.

For instance, a social media influencer might grapple with contractual agreements, marketing standards, and potential liabilities surrounding statements or endorsements made online.
