954 Spring 2019 Can Facebook Steal My Stuff? Your Intellectual Property Rights on Social Media
Tuesday, 2:15–3:40, Mar. 26
Instructor: Dr. Joyce Johnston
Europe’s new General Data Protection Regulation produced a flood of recent privacy notices on social media, but does it really protect your rights to your personal information? What about Pinterest pins or images on YouTube or Instagram? Or career info on LinkedIn or ResearchGate? Or remarks posted to Twitter or Facebook? Learn what US copyright law can and can’t do to protect your intellectual property rights on top social media sites.
Joyce Johnston’s graduate work was in medieval literature, but her current areas of specialization reflect the opportunities offered to Mason faculty: computer assisted instruction, online civility, and intellectual property rights, especially issues surrounding copyright and plagiarism in electronic environments. She has spoken at several national, state, and regional conferences about digital intellectual property, music copyright, and copyright issues in education. This presentation was originally an invited talk at the Virginia Association of School Librarians’ annual conference in November 2018.
