Facebook Copyright Law A Hoax

The Facebook copyright messages you’ve been seeing on Facebook is a hoax. Thousands of people have been posting and sharing information about the so called new ‘Facebook copyright law’ on their Facebook pages.  Like me, you might be wondering what the heck is going on.

Well, the social networking site has debunked the whole ordeal as a hoax– one that’s actually making the rounds for the second time, in fact.  The message, which many users shared as status updates or wall posts, basically declares that all of their content is copyrighted and cannot be used without formal consent.  It states that any user who fails to post the copyright message is “tacitly allowing the use of elements such as your photos as well as the information contained in your profile status updates.”

Here’s the thing- you already own all of the content you post on Facebook, and you’re already protected under copyright law, whether or not you post this phony message.  You should not believe any of this and remove all information regarding this hoax from your timeline.
