Tips and tricks for handling copyrighted content on the internet
Toronto lawyer and trade-mark agent Ashlee Froese recently shared her thoughts on handling copyrighted content, the importance of legal advice for copyright owners and how copyright law applies on Twitter as part of a Social Media Ref event in Toronto, hosted by Cision Canada.
“Copyright law is not the simplest piece of legislation, there’s a misconception that if something’s on the internet, it’s a free-for-all for everyone to take and I think that hopefully, people have learned that it’s the exact opposite. If something is on the internet, think about it first before you use it, republish it or what have you,” says Froese, a lawyer with Gilbert’s LLP.
