Davis Wright Tremaine attorneys Amber Husbands and David Oxenford conducted a webinar on August 26, 2009 for the Kansas Association of Broadcasters, discussing legal issues of importance to on-air talent.  Issues discussed included broadcast indecency, station contests, sponsorship identification and payola issues, potential liability that can arise from the use of social media and newsroom issues.  The newsroom issues included libel, slander and defamation; invasion of privacy; issues about taping and hidden cameras; and possible newsgathering torts including trespassing.
