    Digital museums disseminated over technology platforms and social networks are increasingly popular. However, these social networks raise a number of legal issues including copyright law, trademark law, right of publicity law, and data protection. This panel will explore some of the key issues facing museums involved in curating interactive online exhibitions or smartphone apps that are backed up with social media strategies and crowdfunding options. It will also offer "best practices" suggestions concerning what museums can do to ensure their activities comply with relevant intellectual law regimes.
