The annual meeting of the Massachusetts Newspaper Publishers Association is this Friday, Dec. 5. There is still time to register and you can do so using the 2008 registration form.
Our luncheon speaker is retiring Supreme Judicial Court Justice John M. Greaney, longtime cochair of the SJC’s Judiciary-Media Committee. Today is his last day at the court before he joins the Suffolk University Law School faculty. (See Saturday’s profile of Justice Greaney by AP writer Denise Lavoie.)
Our morning panel will explore the legal issues surrounding blogs and comments on newspaper-hosted Web sites. Three experts will share their insights and advice:
- Robert A. Bertsche, Esq., a nationally known media lawyer and partner with the Boston firm Prince, Lobel, Glovsky & Tye.
- David Ardia, Esq., fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society and the director of the Citizen Media Law Project, which provides legal education and resources for individuals and organizations involved in citizen media.
- Ed Kubosiak, editor-in-chief of MassLive.com.
The day begins with the MNPA’s annual business meeting at 10 a.m., followed by the panel discussion at 11, a reception at noon and the luncheon at 12:30. The event is being held at Anthony’s Pier 4 in Boston.
