Advice for using content on social media that does not belong to you!

“Be cautious and seek the advice of counsel before sharing content belonging to others on social media sites.  Taking proper steps to mitigate legal risks helps maximize the enormous benefits of social media participation. ” -Tracy Gray and Nicole Day

FOR THE FUTURE!!!

” Instead of posting copyrighted content directly on your social media page, post a link to the original source containing the content.  While giving attribution to the original source is not a defense to infringement, it may help reduce the likelihood of receiving a complaint and supports a fair use defense.”
