Parker Poe’s Melanie Dubis Partners with Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce on Social Media Policy

Dubis Denotes Rules and Restrictions for Use with Social Networking Sites.

Raleigh, NC, March 27, 2011 --( Melanie Black Dubis, a partner at Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP, has partnered with the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce to develop website terms of use and social media policy. The policy covers social networking websites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn as well as the Chamber’s blog. It details the rules and restrictions for appropriate and prohibitive content, and all responsibilities and liabilities for those using the website and contributing content.

Dubis serves the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce’s Communication Committee, which operates as an in-house, full-service agency handling a variety of communication activities. The Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce is the Triangle’s largest business membership organization, made up of more than 2,500 member firms representing two-thirds of the private sector employment in Wake County.

“Misuse of social media can have serious legal implications,” said Dubis. “By developing a comprehensive policy now, the Chamber will avoid potential legal liability and guide users toward contributing pertinent content that will stimulate dialogue rather than lawsuits.”
