Course Details

The Internet and social media have drastically and irreversibly altered the day-to-day realities of copyright law on a global scale.

Social networking services like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest make it easier than ever to share, alter and circulate all kinds of content to a global audience. These services provide many new opportunities for businesses, however; they also increase the risk businesses committing copyright infringement, or having their own copyright infringed.

This course discusses the common copyright issues that arise in the context of social media, both for businesses creating their own content and those sharing content created by others. The course explores topics including:

  • fair use
  • implied licencing
  • copyright infringement
  • account ownership
  • advising on social media policies.

The course provides practical examples to enable lawyers to readily identify potential risks as well as discussing how to mitigate these risks.
