Reading Notes PR Writing Week 3 September 21, 2010

Filed under: Reading Notes PR Writing — melmomorris @ 8:26 PM

Our reading for this week was chapter 3 and was about how to write for PR pieces and avoiding legal hassles. This chapter went in-depth about this subject and made it very clear on what is OK in writing and what is not legally. Libel and defamation are big factors along with copyright laws and trademarks. You don’t want to plagiarise, so you need to cite all sources whether they be photographs, art work, or quotes used by anyone else. There are strong laws against this and are enforced and regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Trade Commission.
