Chapter Three: Avoiding Legal Hassles

  • PR professionals not only have to master persuasive writing but they must also be able to understand basic legal concepts.  Using an unauthorized picture or making false claims can lead to lawsuits.
  • The best way to avoid defamtion is to “watch your language.”  There are many different things that can be considered defamation from an unflattering picture or using the wrong word.

Notes and reading are from the textbook Public Relations Writing and Media Techniques, Sixth Edition by Dennis Wilcox.
