Can you copyright protect what you put on Facebook?

Recently, I was asked by Tim Priebe, the founder of T&S Web Design to address some warnings people have been posting on their Facebook accounts regarding copyright and privacy. I and many other people believe these warnings are simply “hoaxes” and totally ineffective in changing a user’s legal rights.

You can read the whole post at the T&S website to find out more about this issue.

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Cazes Roberts, PLLC in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with wife Amy and my two children, Sam (17) and David (9). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
