Privacy concerns after Instagram's acquisition by Facebook

Privacy concerns after Instagram's acquisition by Facebook | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Some Instagram users are upset about the acquisition by Facebook - but are they right to complain about what happens to their uploaded photographs?

 

What needs to be recognised is that anytime you decide to store your information online, you should also assume that it could be used for marketing purposes and that it may be publicly available.

 

The acquisition of Instagram is a perfect example of how data shared online may have an uncertain future.

 

As Instagram's policies state, they are "subject to change without notice" ===> and users should be sure they are comfortable with their information being used in any way they can imagine. <===

Copyright: BEE SECURE: no pointing the finger but a helping hand | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

In Luxembourg, every 7th grade secondary school class (pupils aged 12-14) participates in a BEE SECURE training session. For all other grades, BEE SECURE training can be organised on demand. On average, 500 training sessions are held each year. The topic of intellectual property online is emphasised within the sessions in a special way.

 

Although the Luxembourgish legislation on intellectual property has existed since 1975 and corresponds to the laws of the neighboring countries, lots of youngsters seem to have very little information about the topic, if any at all!

 

Obviously one of the subjects that concerns young people most is file sharing, especially regarding music files.

 

Although illegal file sharing hasn't officially been persecuted in Luxembourg until now, most young people are nevertheless unaware of the fact that they could get into trouble.

 

Hardly any youngsters know that music artists can sue them from every part of the world.

“Teaching copyright at school should be done calmly and without emotions, on the contrary to some copyright organisations’ rhetoric, which balances on the fine line of good practice and legality.

Iran expected to permanently cut off Internet by August

Iran expected to permanently cut off Internet by August | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Country's minister of information and communication says national intranet will create a 'clean Internet.' 

 

Millions of Internet users in Iran could soon be permanently cut off from the Web, social networks, and e-mail.


In a statement released last week, Reza Taghipour, the Iranian minister for Information and Communications Technology, announced it plans to establish a national intranet within five months in an effort to create a "clean Internet," according to an International Business Times report. "All Internet Service Providers (ISP) should only present National Internet by August," Taghipour said in the statement.


Web sites such as Google, Hotmail, and Yahoo will be blocked and replaced by government-administered services such as like Iran Mail and Iran Search Engine, according to the report. The government has already begun a registration process for those interested in using the Iran Mail that will verify and record user's full name and address.

Generation Flux: Meet The Pioneers Of The New (And Chaotic) Frontier Of Business

Generation Flux: Meet The Pioneers Of The New (And Chaotic) Frontier Of Business | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
The future of business is pure chaos. Here’s how you can survive--and perhaps even thrive.

 

To flourish requires a new kind of openness. More than 150 years ago, Charles Darwin foreshadowed this era in his description of natural selection: "It is not the strongest of the species that survives; nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change." As we traverse this treacherous, exciting bridge to tomorrow, there is no clearer message than that.

 

Today we face a similar transition, this time born of technology and globalization--an unhinging of the expected, from employment to markets to corporate leadership. "There are all kinds of reasons to be afraid of this economy," says Microsoft Research's boyd. "Technology forces disruption, and not all of the change will be good.

 

Optimists look to all the excitement. Pessimists look to all that gets lost. They're both right. How you react depends on what you have to gain versus what you have to lose."

Cidadania Digital – Helping kids to be better digital citizens/Copyright

Cidadania Digital – Helping kids to be better digital citizens/Copyright | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Being the month when we celebrate World Intellectual Property Day (WIPO), it’s the perfect time to dedicate some thought to intellectual property online and intellectual property rights. The fluidity of contents on the internet, and the sophistication of information and communication technologies, allow access opportunities never seen before, but alongside this is often a disregard for the rights of those who created the content.

 

This sometimes happens deliberately, but most of the time it is simply because the user doesn’t think about it!

 

In Portugal, in order to raise awareness on this theme, Microsoft, in a partnership with the Ministry of Education (both partners in the Portuguese Safer Internet Centre), created the Cidadania Digital website.

 

This resource offers a curriculum tool to be used by teachers with students in 8th and 10th grade on how to be a good digital citizen.

 

===> This includes using/sharing creative content, while respecting intellectual property. <===

Teachers on the safe side of the law

Teachers on the safe side of the law | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

It has always been the case that teachers collect content for their classroom activities. In Austria, there is a saying: “Teachers are collectors and hunters”.

 

They collect all usable content and hunt for the best bits in order to reuse it for their classroom activities. This, of course, has never quite complied with copyright laws. But in pre-internet times this was not a major concern as teachers’ materials were almost never published outside of the classroom.

 

Now, however, teachers’ ability to ‘hunt and collect’, and the boundless opportunities to share their material online, make it necessary to look for new strategies and at the same time raise teachers’ awareness about copyright issues.

 

Some schools in Austria have actually received cease-and-desist orders from lawyers for copyright violations, for example using copyright protected pictures on their websites.

Copyright, Plagiarism, and Digital Literacy

Copyright, Plagiarism, and Digital Literacy | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

What is copyright?

 

Copyright gives people the legal right to decide how original work that they have created can be used once it has been published. Contrary to popular belief, a copyright notice does not need to be attached to a piece of work for it to be copyrighted – as soon as the work is published, then copyright applies.

 

In other words, aside from a few notable exceptions (some of which we will touch on later) somebody owns the copyright to pretty much everything that has ever been published on the Internet.

 

===> It is not a free resource bank that people can dip into and use however they see fit! <===
