PPA Today: Copyright: April 2009 Archives

Copyright: April 2009 Archives

Yesterday (April 16), Facebook's new Terms of Service (TOS) statement was opened for voting. This new document is an improvement over Facebook's existing TOS and the impromptu change made earlier this year.
 
Take a look at the statement and voice your opinion with a vote. After all, even if you don't use Facebook all that much, some (or most) of your clients do! But you better vote quickly--the voting period closes April 23. (You must have a Facebook account to vote.)

Over one month in the making, Facebook's updated Terms of Service (TOS) statement is getting ready to launch...and they want their users to vote.  

PPA's comments, along with user feedback, have been compiled and will be shared on Facebook's site, beginning April 16. Instead of a traditional TOS document, Facebook will release two separate items: Facebook Principles and a Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.

The Facebook Principles will serve as a guideline to share with the services and benefits that participation in Facebook provides. The Statement of Rights and Responsibilities is the "meat and potatoes" of their existing TOS. By visiting their website (or clicking the above links), anyone (Facebook user or not) can read both documents as they were proposed last month.

Unlike the immediate implementation that occurred back in February, each document will be put to a vote (April 16-23). Voting will be limited to Facebook users.  

PPA is actively monitoring the Facebook site so that we can offer photographers our position. We want to ensure that members of the Facebook community can cast an educated vote when the time comes. Keep watching and get ready to vote!
