The Copyright Law – Being Careful Online

The internet can be a dangerous place and it’s important to know that you need to be carefully if you’re going to be sharing material that is created by somebody else. Images on Facebook and other social media networks are fine to share, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you can use their image to promote your own or make money from it.

Photographers especially have to be very careful online and that’s why many of them will watermark their images, and make it clear that the copyright belongs to them. Written content can also cause problems and when you copy and paste content from somebody else’s website and try to pass it off as your own, you can find yourself in big trouble.

So the message here is always be cautious with the content you’re sharing or using online.

The New Defamation Act

Twitter has forced the defamation act to go back to the drawing board, and the new version offers improved defence for website operators who host user-generator content. The new act states that operators will not be liable if they can show that they did not ‘post’ an offending statement, so Facebook users and Twitter users do get an element of protection.

Second publishers are also defended in a way, and this is because regurgitated content is fine in cases where it is not ‘reasonably practicable’ for the claimant to pursue the primary publisher. Courts also now have the power to remove any harmful material, but of course this can become uncontrollable in some cases where content has been shared too many times.

The new defamation act is not a complete overhaul but it has some important tweaks, and these may be welcomed by many Titter and Facebook users.

UK Law and Motoring – Ditching the Tax Disc

There have been a number of changes in the motoring industry but the most recent development is the change to ditch the paper tax disc. From October onwards, you’ll no longer have to place a tax disc on your windscreen.

Police can carry out checks whenever they need to, and over the last few years there has been less need to have the paper version in the car. You can now check online whether you’re a particular vehicle is taxed, so it’s time to take down the tax disc holder (in October).

The change in law means that tax is no longer transferred with the car in a sale. Car sellers will receive a refund for tax if there is one or more month’s worth on the vehicle while new owners must buy tax for the car before they can drive it.

This legal change is a big one, mainly because the tax disc has been around for such a long time, not necessarily because of the change sit will have on the public.

Guides to Inheritance.

Inheritance is the practice of passing on property, titles, debts, rights and obligations upon the death of an individual. The person who inherits is known as an heir. Inheritance has played a crucial role in human since time immemorial. Inheritance has rules and nobody can just inherit a property.
The guide to inheritance can be traced from law, society or religion. For instance, in law, a person does not become an heir before the death of the decedent. This is because the exact identity of the person entitled to inhibit is determined only then.
The Quran is another guide to inheritance. The Quran imposes restrictions on testamentary power in disposing of his or her property.  Muslims are required to give only up to one third of their property.
Jewish law is another guide to inheritance.A father is the owner of property in this religion. Inheritance is patrilineal i.e. property passes from father to the father’s son. If the father has no son and he dies, then the property goes to the daughter.
History can also provide guide to inheritance. Anthropology and sociology give account on use of patrilineal inheritance and to some extent matrilineal i.e. property passes along female lines. Inheritance of property has taken a new root. Decedents often leave wills which explains on mean of sharing the property of the decedents. A will is the most convenient way to guide for inheritance since it specifies who should inherit what and what?
