Paul Jacobson

Web and Digital Media Lawyer, Jacobson Attorneys

I started out my career as a commercial lawyer with Werksmans Incorporated and left to start my own practice, Jacobson Attorneys, in August 2005. On 1 August 2007 I launched a new media law and policy focus area in Jacobson Attorneys. This new emphasis for my work as a lawyer draws on my experience with social media to provide an innovative service to clients involved in the new media space. I focus on the intersect between social media (I prefer the term "new media") and the law. There are four themes I find most interesting and they are content licensing (I am biased towards open content licenses like Creative Commons licenses); expression and defamation; privacy and unlawful competition. Of course general commercial law principles apply to new media implementations so I also prepare terms and conditions and a variety of policy documents for clients as well.
