Social Media Quotes, Music and Photo Copyrights
Ignite Social Media
MARCH 15, 2019
We see them all the time on social, inspiration quotes meant to get our fingers tapping that like button. People relate to them and share them with their friends almost as much as memes. The question is, if you’re a brand, can you legally use the quotes? Most of us are used to music copyrights, products and photos but quotes don’t seem to trigger the same “is this legal?” question. According to US copyright law, legal rights to a quote belong, by default, to the author or speaker.
