Nov 29, 2010 12:00 PM ET

(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) November 29, 2010 - New and exciting digital marketing programs offer great opportunities, but also raise tricky legal questions. This session will explore how traditional cause marketing legal concepts should be applied to new concepts such as crowdsourced grant programs, text-to-donate campaigns, and using Facebook or Twitter activity to trigger donations. Your faculty includes legal counsel from two of the biggest players in cause marketing - Po Yi of American Express and Jonathan Blum of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, plus CMF's longtime legal commentator and instructor Ed Chansky from the law firm Greenberg Traurig.
