It is no secret that the internet and social media specifically are at the center of our everyday lives. Apps such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and similar platforms make it easy to be a little too comfortable sharing our day to day routines and memories. These social platforms seem to be accessed by millions every single day.

One of the areas of intellectual property is copyright. A United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) patent attorney search will show according to the copyright laws of the United States, a person has a “common law” copyright to a creative expression once it has been expressed in a “fixed medium.” This means copyright can be expressed as anything written in emails, art, music and even post on social media.
