Public Domain or Just Public?

Please, please, please learn the difference between public and public domain! Not everything online is free for you to use however you wish!

Dealing with Stolen Videos

If you have made videos and uploaded them anywhere online, there is a chance that someone has stolen them. Seems crazy that people would rather steal a video than make their own or just use the share/embed code. Why don’t they just share or embed your video? Because they want to gain something by cl...

I Really Hate FreeBooting

I bet you have seen FreeBooting on your favorite social sites…Facebook is a Freebooting nightmare! I think Instagram is going to follow in the same steps if people don’t stand up for creators.

Safe Harbors and User Generated Content

You may have heard of Safe Harbors as a legal term in reference to DMCA, but what does it mean?

Do You Read the TOS for Apps

You may install several apps on your pone, but do you take the time to read through the Terms of Service for each one or do you just click the Install button and worry about the TOS later?
