We Organize A Few Flash Mobs Any Year – Before The Flash Mob

flash crowd Let start a civilization which provides for its energy using renewable energy.

Surely it’s a combination of two Catalan words.Oli and No.

Gether they mean Oil No! We found an appropriate name for our organisation, OliNo, that is a word joke for No Oil! Needless to say, this gives a clear indication that the web site needs a bunch of tweaking to get a better performance. Amongst the first things we did is to analyse the website with the very nice Firefox plugin YSlow. Anyway, the tip to minimize HTTP requests, is the first we should tackle. However, the tip given there is to combine as much Javascript files and Stylesheets into both single files. Now look, the webpage has 14 external Javascript files, 6 external CSS StyleSheets and 24 CSS background images. Needless to say, preferably it’s a good idea to have only one Javascript and one CSS file. It’s also suggested to use minified version for the Javascript files. It’s an interesting fact that the improvements suggestions are sorted on most impact on top. Therefore the flash mob organizers or their lawyer should try to think of everything that could go wrong throughout the event and nearly any law that they nearly any event. While blocking a thoroughfare, impersonating a government official, disorderly conduct, unlawful assembly, and indecent exposure, over the years, I’ve had to research laws similar to trespassing.

Organizers are also at risk of being cited for solicitation if they post an invitation for the public to participate in a flash mob on their website or Facebook if the event involves a crime.

Like trespassing, and they scout this place or buy costumes for the event, that could have been sufficient evidence for an arrest, I’d say in case a flash mob troupe plans an event that involves a crime. In many states, two people can be arrested for conspiracy if they make a plan to commit a crime and one person takes one action in furtherance of that crime. Regardless of the plan, organizers need to be prepared for encounters with police at their events. Now look, the organizers need to know about Terry stops, their rights to remain silent and to legal counsel, and whether they are legally obligated to produce a valid identification card upon request.

There can be flash mobs that push the legal envelope where organizers might need to have a copy of certain statutes with them so they can directly address the officers’ concerns and demonstrate that they are acting within the legal limits of the law. I love working on flash mob projects, and it’s a fun area of law to practice. Anyways, as a rule of a thumb, be aware of their legal needs and considering adding flash mob law to your areas of practice, So if you have flash mob troupes in your area. Flash mobs have become somewhat commonplace, and flash mob law is an emerging area of practice. Generally, flash mob organizers need lawyers who understand their needs and are willing to work with them to prepare for their events. Just think for a moment.a lot of hope to have the event dispersed before the police can be summoned, or hope to have a bunch of participants that is so large that the ringleaders could not be picked out from the crowd.

Unless they are marketers who are using a flash mob to promote their client, flash mob organizers generally do not obtain permits for their events.

If they get sued and lose, they don’t have a separate entity or liability insurance to protect them, the organizers might be personally responsible for the damages.

Many of us are aware that there is also a risk that the organizers will face civil liability if anyone is injured or any property is damaged during a flash mob. Most flash mob troupes are a number of friends and a website. For instance, whenever welcoming a stranger at the airport, and fake protests, me of our past events include the annual No Pants Light Rail Ride, the ‘award winning’ Epic Super Hero Battle.

I participated in my first flash mob when I was a 1L at Arizona State University.

The event was the No Pants Light Rail Ride in Phoenix, Arizona in At that event, I met the people with whom I formed a flash mob troupe called Improv Arizona.

We organize a couple of flash mobs any year. So here is the question. Just the ones who planned the event?

Are all the organizers in the group liable?

Must only the individuals who did the actual acts be held responsible?

Everyone who was an administrator on the Facebook page or website where the event was announced? We are looking at questions that must be answered on a case by case basis. Only the ones who were present at the event? Now this raises another unique question about who should’ve been held responsible if something goes wrong at a flash mob. It’s a well it should take a particular lawyer to practice flash mob law as you have to be open to and generally support your clients’ ridiculous ideas, patiently work with them to try to keep their events legal, and be willing to be the killjoy who explains what amount ways they could get arrested or sued if they proceed with their plans. While putting on the event, and the legal implications that come into play once the flash mob is over, from the initial stage, I was fascinated by flash mob law all the problems that arise while planning a flash mob. Flash mob law was not a separate area of law but a hybrid of criminal, tort, property, intellectual property, Amendment, and entertainment law. For example, they need to know what authority the malls cops have and what to do if they encounter them, I’d say in case organizers are planning to do a flash mob in a mall.

In many communities the mall has replaced the city square, and I know it’s a prime location for flash mobs.

They can’t force someone to show identification, mall cops are not deputized, and they can’t detain a person who was not shoplifting.

They can also tell anyone to leave the property. The uncertain part is that malls are privately owned, and many owners do not like flash mobs on their premises. They can’t force someone to prove that they erased their footage, they can enforce the mall’s rules against videotaping at the mall. I will not be shocked to learn that quite a few subscribers are reporters who use the list to know where to show up to shoot footage for the news.

It’s also not uncommon for local TV stations to show up at flash mob events.

All these photos and videos create a copious percentage of evidence against the organizers and the participants if any misconduct occurs throughout the flash mob.

Plenty of flash mob troupes have email lists for notifying potential participants about upcoming events. One of our local malls has put all the flash mob troupes on notice that flash mobs are not permitted on their premises and that we might be arrested for trespassing if we have an event there. My troupe won’t do an event there being that we don’t seek for to go where we’re not welcome, and they have real police officers on site. Flash mob organizers were banned from that mall the last time a group had a flash mob there, and the event was a Christmas carol ‘singalong’ in the course of the holiday season. That’s where it starts getting really interesting, right? They may not be ready for the let’s say. He might get fired if his boss dislikes the fact that he participated in the flash mob, and no laws were broken. Basically the photos and videos allow people who were not present in the course of the flash mob to experience the event.
