libraries use social media to :

  • Within most of the institutions represented, the librarians have been early pioneers in using social media.

Copyright implications for Social Media and Internet Service Providers

The number of users on social media is staggering. At present, there are 1.15 billion Facebook users1, 218 million monthly active Twitter users2, and 300 million LinkedIn users3. It is clear that social media is now an integral part of a business’ marketing strategy, but how do intellectual property laws relate to this relatively new form of mass communication?

This article will focus on three social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. The main types of material posted in social media are text, photos, artwork and videos. Copyright is the main intellectual property right that is relevant to these materials. Copyright protects the form of expression, not the ideas. Thus, an article on the internet about US President Obama does not prevent another person writing a different post about Obama. It merely prevents a copying of the same words or arrangement as the first article.
