Update to Social Media & Photographers

As an update to yesterday's post regarding the benefits & perils of social media and intellectual property rights, I find the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) has published a guide for photographers using these services. You can find ASMP's Best Practice Recommendations For Social Networking Sites here.

From the ASMP site:

  • In response to member requests, ASMP commissioned attorney Chris Reese to undertake a review of the Terms of Service (TOS) of six social media sites and to prepare findings and recommendations. The sites included in his assessment are Facebook, Photobucket, Flickr, MySpace, YouTube and Twitter. This report presents recommended best practices, considerations, common terms used, and hypothetical situations photographers may face when images are posted on social networking sites.

    Take a few moments to read the article. You'll be glad you did.

    Thanks again to Leslie at the Burns Auto Parts Blog for the find.
