Are you licensing your work for free if you upload it on social media sites?
Many of us overlook reading the terms of service in relation to the social media outlets we use, and yet this is what determines our legal relationship with the site in question.
Understanding these terms is therefore of crucial importance, particularly when using sites as part of a professional capacity or as a way of marketing your work.
Creative IP and DACS have put together a comprehensive factsheet that explains what to look for in the Terms & Conditions of various social networks and what it means in practice. The factsheet also has a glossary of common terms used in T&C.
