This is Briefly, a production of the University of Chicago Law Review. Today we are discussing social media influencers and their ability to manipulate markets. We also discuss the legal regime that governs influencers and the agencies, namely the SEC and FTC, that regulate them. We’re joined by Anna Pinedo, a partner in Mayer Brown’s Corporate & Securities practice and an adjunct professor at the George Washington University School of Law, and James Cox, the Brainerd Currie Professor of Law at Duke Law School.
