New Media Breakfast Glasgow 27th November

The Glasgow breakfast in Friday 27th seems to have been a success with lots of good feedback about John MacKenzie's presentation on legal issues and user generated content. John MacKenzie, partner with Pinsent Masons is clearly an expert in this field and, a very enthusiastic user of social media. And, what a great compliment to his presentation that we ran out of time for the scheduled look at some viral video, the Q&A session and discussion was too good to cut short.

John took us through case studies covering the following topics:

• Using third party's material
• Ownership of material posted on social networking or blogging sites
• Mashups
• Web-scraping
• Protecting reputation on Facebook
• False testimonials

John also referred to some articles and web sites during his presentation, I have listed these here in no particular order:

Bogus online reviews face EU ban
ECJ rulings on Google keywords might not resolve controversy, warns High Court
Monsterski raising money for the MS Trust
Swede can't swallow McDonald's Pizza
Tech companies revealed as source of fake reviews
Why the Advocate General got Google Adwords wrong

Thank you again to John for his presentation, I recommend you come along and hear him at the New Media Breakfast in Edinburgh if you missed him in Glasgow. (Date of New Media Breakfast in Edinburgh to be confirmed)

Thanks also to No.29 who again provided the bacon rolls, tea and coffee with excellent service and attention to detail. What a difference it makes to turn up at a venue and have everything provided the way they said it would be. (See my previous post about Pittodrie in Aberdeen)

  2. But cellulite can also be a problem for some men, and with
    certain hormonal conditions it is actually quite common. There are cellulite
    creams made with natural ingredients that stimulate the skin and reduce water retention
    beneath the skin. Finding a way to prevent it in the first place remains an impossibility until science
    can tell us where it comes from.

  3. When covering the area, it should be enough to use a regular
    bandage. Cholera is an acute infection of the small intestine, and it
    can be life-threatening. Chocolate and junk foods are often blamed for the cause of acne.
