Raleigh, NC (PressExposure) August 21, 2008 -- Diane Kuehn, president and chief executive officer of VisionPoint Marketing (www.visionpointmarketing.com), has announced that the firm hosted a client lunch and learn to discuss the topic of user generated content (UGC). At the lunch and learn, Womble Carlyle, a full-service business law firm, led the presentation on what companies should know about UGC, as well as guidelines for inviting consumers to interact with a brand online while managing the brand ownerâs legal risk. VisionPoint clients learned that UGC can increase consumer interest in the brand and encourage participation on the Web site, but can also make the Web site owner vulnerable to legal claims from competitors, government regulators and other consumers. The presentation included advice on how to balance qualifying for safe harbors under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the Communications Decency Act while retaining control of the brand message.
