IP Whiteboard editor published in Internet Law Bulletin: Recent legal developments involving Twitter

If you still think that Tweeting is something only birds do, it’s time to fly the coop. Launched in 2006, Twitter is an online social networking site that enables its 645 million registered users worldwide to send and receive 140 character “Tweets”. More than 5700 Tweets are sent every second and up to 75% of mainstream journalists now find stories through Twitter.

Twitter is a rapidly emerging platform about which clients are increasingly seeking legal guidance. For lawyers, Twitter represents an opportunity, as well as a chance to network and stay informed.

I have written an article about some recent legal developments involving Twitter across the globe, which has been published in the latest edition of Lexis Nexis’ Internet Law Bulletin (2014) 17(1).

The article sheds light on three hot topics:

  • What happens to copyright in photos once you post them to Twitter?
  • Does copyright subsist in a 140-character Tweet?
  • Defamation, and other reasons why you cannot always Tweet anything you want.

A copy of this article is available online here.
