Technology typically outpaces changes in the law. With social media becoming a prominent method to disseminate information, traditional principals of law have been stretched. This presentation will address the divergent views of long-established precedent in the Ninth Circuit in Perfect 10 and recent decisions in District Courts within the Second Circuit when evaluating copyright infringement claims for the use of others’ content through embedding and in-line linking. We’ll also look at the positions of various social media platforms that require users to agree to terms and conditions protective of the platforms while offering no clear protection for the users.
