Did you know that the funny meme you just shared might contain copyrighted material?

It’s true! Copyright protects original creative works, including images, videos, and even text.

Here’s an example: Sharing a meme that uses a screenshot from a movie or TV show could be copyright infringement. The good news? Many memes fall under fair use, which allows limited use of copyrighted material for purposes like commentary or parody.

The key takeaway? Understand fair use before you hit share!
