The Social Media Club of St. Louis had their monthly networking event and panel discussion last week at Moulin. I have to give the organizers credit. They seem to consistently pull off some of the best attended events of this kind in St. Louis. Props to Reem Abeidoh and Brad Hogenmiller for pulling off another successful event.

This month's meeting featured a panel discussion on legal ethics in Social Media. The discussion, moderated by former lawyer Matt Homann, ended up being mostly about intellectual property rights online. And while it was an informative discussion, I would have liked the panelists to spend some talking about Creative Commons licensing.
The panel included:

Dana Loesch - blogger, host of The Dana Show on 97.1FM Talk

Eric Kayira - intellectual property, entertainment, new media attorney

Dennis Kennedy - attorney for MasterCard, blogger
      
Rex Gradeless - recent law school grad, blogger also organizer of the World's Largest Tweetup

Anyway here are the photos (click the images for a larger view):
