Have you ever wondered if social media users have protection over their usernames? Are viral Tik Tok dance challenges protectable? Can someone else use your original photos or retell your original joke for a meme? In this ever evolving digital landscape, where creative works are constantly shared, reposted and recycled, there are countless legal questions relating to intellectual property online.
This class, intended for artists, dancers, musicians, content creators and influencers alike, will answer your questions about intellectual property law and social media. We will discuss the impact of social media on the protection of creative works, the scope of copyright and trademark protection for short phrases and viral trends, and how to protect your original content through the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
