This Just In: Flash Mob Law

A testament to the organizational power of social media, these fun and often irreverent events have been used for marketing, protest, or just to turn heads. Not surprisingly, flash mob organizers have bumped into legal issues, ranging from trespassing to conspiracy. Ruth Carter, an Arizona attorney, has written Flash Mob Law [Find it], the first ever book written on the subject. It covers legal implications pre- and post-flash mob, issues with participants and bystanders, privacy and jurisdiction, and more.
