Flash Mob Law: The Legal Side of Planning and Participating in Pillow Fights, No Pants Rides, and Other Shenanigans

FML bookYou’ve seen the videos of Improv Everywhere’s No Pants Subway Ride and flash mobs of people dancing in the streets and malls. Flash mob attorney and American Bar Association Legal Rebel Ruth Carter explains how these groups pull off these stunts without getting sued or arrested.

She walks you through the entire flash mob process – from the planning stage, to the flash mob performance, to post production – and explains all the laws you have to think about (and there’s a lot of them!)

She explains what could go wrong, what has gone wrong at other flash mobs, and how to avoid making the same mistakes using real-life examples from Improv Everywhere’s missions and her experiences as a flash mob organizer with Improv AZ.

Flash Mob Law: The Legal Side of Planning and Participating in Pillow Fights, No Pants Rides, and Other Shenanigans is available from the American Bar Association and Amazon.
