It occurred to me today that there is a genuine need for normal people to protect their interests and online life. Nowadays when copyright has become more like a weapon than a tool, when our social internet is threatened with extinction I believe that is a good idea for everyone to start posting legal disclaimers, at least in theory to protect ourselves against ill intended people or organizations. Here is my version of “Facebook disclaimer” based almost entirely on Herche’s Blog Disclaimer found here that is one of my favorite disclaimers that i have found until now.
You have my permission to copy a part or the entire post written here as long as you keep or write clearly write an attribution to the original post found here ( http://ledux.blogspot.com/2005/03/herches-blog-disclaimer.html ) and my website post here ( ). The original post content was used with permission per his disclaimers page of http://ledux.blogspot.com/
How to use:
- Replace “LINK TO YOUR PROFILE PAGE ” text with your Facebook profile link for example: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000891117685 or http://www.facebook.com/your.user.name
- Replace “YOUR PROFILE/USER ID” with the number found in your profile link for example: 100000891117685 or your Username if you have set one in General Account Settings, be careful because changing the username can invalidate the disclaimer!
- Post the result in an accessible place on your profile/timeline page, under the name/title “Legal Disclaimer”. Be sure the disclaimer is shared as public and not only to your close friends. In Facebook you can for example use a NOTE with the title “Legal Disclaimer”. Another idea of posting this Legal Disclaimer on Facebook is by creating a picture with this text and post it in your Facebook albums.
- You are done !
- Please bookmark this page and check regularly for updates. I will try to do my best to update it if it’s necessary.
Here is the the legal disclaimer. You can start copying from here:
