Social media contract controls

On The Hollywood Reporter's blog, Andrew Wallenstein and Matthew Belloni report on the growing trend for film and TV contracts that curb the use of social media.
A recent talent contract from Disney includes a new clause forbidding confidentiality breaches via “interactive media such as Facebook, Twitter, or any other interactive social network or personal blog.”

Over at DreamWorks, a writer’s deal cautions not to jump the gun on studio press releases via “a social networking site, blog or other Internet-type site.” An agent spotted a talent deal with a stricture that forbids bashing any element of a production with social media.
