Facebook users' copyright posts unnecessary, useless
Margaret Millikin, director and co-chair of Crowe & Dunlevy's Intellectual Property and Technology Group, addresses the deluge of status updates regarding copyrights of users.
Q: How could you properly protect the content on your profile?
A: Facebook's policy outlines ways to protect your content through privacy settings. The policy expressly states that you own all of your posted content and that Facebook only has a right to use it. Of course, you will own only the content that you actually created or purchased. If you post content that you do not own, other laws and provisions in the Facebook policy will come into play. Rest assured, however, that Facebook does not claim to own your content simply because you post it on your wall.
