    Sigh, I end up getting stuck at the last part of my Web Security assignment even though I stayed up till 3am to do it. Can’t really be bothered anymore… Oh well… I wonder when will I get the motivation to do my law readings… 

    Somehow the more I learned about security and IP Law, the more skeptical I am with regards to using social media. Not sure if I want to stop using social media after this semester…

    Do you know that by uploading photos to Instagram, you are giving them a license to do whatever to your photos? But the so-called license can be challenged as well. Then again, why do you want to challenge Instagram with regards to your photos? In addition, using live stream on Facebook or Instagram means you are given performers’ rights which Facebook and Instagram are infringing on your copyright when they provide API calls to share your performance elsewhere. There’s nothing in their terms and conditions that protects themselves with regards to performers’ rights. 

    Anyway, the more I learn about IP Law, the more interesting it gets and the more I am reluctant to use social media…

      Wow, I didn’t know that. I guess I should be aware that when I upload any pictures on SNS. :hk_disappointed:
      Anyway, nice blog! I will come back once in a while to comment on your posts :D

      Hm, I upload a lot of my art-in-progress images on my Instagram, but I don’t think I’d be a victim of infringement of any sort. Who wants to “steal” my incomplete artwork anyway?

      But as far as I know, I haven’t even heard any news reports of cases you mentioned in my local news. Granted, I only live 20 minutes away from Facebook and Instagram Headquarters. I could just drive by and knock on their door if I wanted to.
