Much has changed in the way of marketing agreements in the past decade. With new regulations, including an interpretive rule and the volatilities of the market, it's time for companies to take a look at where the market is headed in terms of business partnerships, alliances and agreements.

- How the interpretative rule has affected marketing agreements;
- How to minimize risks in marketing agreements;
- Social media compliance;
- Pros and cons of entering into strategic relationships; and
