Facebook message claiming users have 'copyright' to photos, timeline posts is a hoax

Facebook message claiming users have 'copyright' to photos, timeline posts is a hoax | Docencia Interconectada | Scoop.it

If you do not want to fall into the trap, read this article. For once I do not control the information, I published this information on my facebook wall...! [note Martin Gysler]

 

A new Facebook hoax has some users thinking they own the copyrights to material posted to their pages.

 

A news message claiming that Facebook users have copyrights to their photos, videos and messages is a load of baloney, according to a report.

 

They don't.


The post, which has recently popped up in some users timelines, says:

“In response to the new Facebook guidelines I hereby declare that my copyright is attached to all of my personal details, illustrations, comics, paintings, professional photos and videos, etc. (as a result of the Berner Convention). For commercial use of the above my written consent is needed at all times!”

To protect copyrights of your facebook content you need to like this t-shirt. Also, if it reaches 10.000 likes it saves a puppy! Please think of the puppies!

The anti-social network: Life without Facebook

A bad breakup: Nothing can be as emotionally tumultuous for a young heart.


Except maybe finding out via your Facebook newsfeed that your college ex is dating someone from your fraternity.

 

That was the defining moment that eventually led Brolin Walters, 24, to ultimately break up with something else: Facebook.

 

"I didn't want to see what was going on with them," said Walters. "So I deactivated my account."

 

With a website that boasts 901 million active users and is launching an IPO on Friday, it seems unlikely that once you get on Facebook, you'd ever leave. But deactivating from the social networking site is not that unusual. Close to half of Americans think Facebook is a passing fad, according to the results of a new Associated Press-CNBC poll.
