social media, social websites
An interesting story about ex-employer suing a man for taking Twitters flowers with him after he left the company. The man was a blogger for the company and he developed the list while working for this company, now who owns the list? The blogger with his skills and style developed a list of followers, but he did that by promoting the company’s product, so who owns the list now? Will future employment contracts list “employers ‘social media sites accounts” as an Intellectual property?
This will be a whole new legal practice field.
