Beginners SMM Department it seems that the social network is a territory where everything is kept on parole and not on law. Liked the picture – just take, and no one will keep track of who and where it was published, and especially to sue. So it continues to seem to the first claim.
Take a look at how protected by copyright in social media and how to avoid litigation.
What are the laws work in social networks?
For SMM-specialists, like all others, applies the seventh paragraph of the Civil code (concerning the rights to results of intellectual activities).
In June last year, the Supreme court explained: the right to the results of such activities (e.g. photo or video) does not pass into public use after the original publication.
Reformulate: if a user posted a picture in the album of your group, this does not mean that you can dispose of it.
Write the rules
Let a lawyer help you to draw up rules for the use of group – and place them in the top and warn the user that the text you want to read. To do this they most likely will not, but you will protect yourself from unnecessary trouble.
Keep in mind that if you missed something, the disputed issue will be resolved not in your favor. Ideally, consult an expert on copyright.
Get permission whenever possible
Even if SMM Manager so scrupulous that they will not take any photo without permission, there is a big problem. In social networks it is difficult or impossible to identify the user as a subject of legal relations. Well, you got a “Yes” answer from the “man” with obviously fake personal data – what next? In addition to written permission, you still must make sure that the user whose agreement you are given, is truly the author and copyright holder.
Large social media departments and company handle it: they sent the prospective author of a standard form and must specify the minimum required information to identify the person. The contract must specify that the rights to use the photos you get for free.
If you want to surendranath photos…
Then you need to obtain permission to do so. In the conventional described above, the contract will specify what you plan to change the image. From the point of view of the author, even a selfie in the bathroom is the product of intellectual activity – and try to prove that it is not. If you demand without sebrandiere this photo, i.e. will make him change, he will break the law.
In any case, if you are only going to work in SMM at-large, consult with a lawyer and get used to the fact that copying content will have to take permission from the authors.
