Images and social media sites

December 20, 2012

Following the recent brouhaha over Instagram’s apparent (and now retracted) claim to the right sell its users’ photos, JISC Legal have drawn attention to a really useful guidance paper Pinterest, Image Sharing Websites and the Law. This highlights the legal implications of using image sharing websites such as Pinterest, Instagram, Flickr and Facebook, with particular emphasis for their use by staff and students in Further & Higher Education.

The story, as usual with Web 2.0, is neither all good nor all bad – but this guidance paper is well worth reading to familiarise yourself with the issues involved.
