Noontime Update - Defamation, Libel and Other Concerns of Newsgathering

Don’t miss this valuable training for newsrooms!

Melissa Melewsky, PNA’s Media Law Counsel, offers advice on protecting you and your news organization from libel and defamation suits. If you’re gathering news in Pennsylvania, you need to know about defamation, invasion of privacy and other causes of action. Online issues can be especially daunting. And, PA’s Clean Slate Act has had an effect on access and coverage.  Most appropriate for editorial staffs, especially newcomers and those desiring a refresher course.

This one-hour webinar is scheduled to begin promptly at 12 noon.

Cost is $10 per login for PNA and PSNE members; $20 for non-members.  Gather your newsroom together in one room and have lunch and learn! Still only $10 with no limit on the number participating.

Registrants must have both a computer and audio/phone in order to participate.

To register, email foundation@pa-news.org or phone (717) 703-3003. Participation instructions will be emailed one or two days before the session.
