Question description


Discussion - Week 5

Intellectual Property Legislation and Social Media

Intellectual property legislation faces new challenges posed by social media, especially in the area of copyrights. The magnitude of Internet publishing, coupled with the potential for viral transmission of published content, means that there may be many potential risks to intellectual property rights. For example, the law prohibits the recording of live music performances and the sale of those recordings. With access to social media sites, these recordings can be shared with the masses with a click of a button. Broad access to technology increases challenges to protecting against copyright infringement.

For this Discussion, select a current piece of U.S. legislation related to regulation of intellectual property. Consider how the legislation you select may be applied in a social media forum.

Post by Day 4 a description of the piece of legislation you selected. Then explain how this legislation may be applied in a social media forum. Finally, explain how social media might contribute to intellectual property theft.
