Ethan Wall featured on NPR, CNN, and Forbes

    June 28, 2017

    When NPR, CNN, and Forbes need expertise on social media and the law, they turn to Ethan for his commentary.

    Okay that sounded a little cheesy. I’m also referring to myself in the third person here – which is lame. But I think you get the idea. As a social media law attorney, author, professor, and social media marketing consultant for lawyers, I’ve had the opportunity to study many different angles of how social media impact the law and how attorneys can use social media in their practice. As a result, NPR, CNN, and other news organizations frequently seek my advice or invite me to their programs to discuss trending topics. Here’s a few recent programs and articles from NPR and CNN:

    CNN – NYPD to Subpoena Twitter over Theater Threat – August 7, 2012

    “These (subpoenas) are becoming more and more common,” said Ethan Wall, a Miami-based intellectual property attorney. “And courts are granting law enforcement pretty big latitude when it comes to getting Twitter records with subpoenas.” Though social media companies often strive to garner user confidence by securing their private information, “when it comes to imminent physical harm, the First Amendment has much less protection,” he said.
    Community banks and credit unions can use social media to level the playing field with big banks. With a thoughtful, and sometimes, inexpensive social media and digital presence, a smaller bank can resonate with its community and engage with existing and potential customers in their area. But what about banking regulations? How do they apply? Forbes turned to me to better understand the challenges that banks and credit unions face when using social media.
