The fake Facebook copyright/privacy message below that started in 2012, which claims to help protect Facebook users' photos, videos and other media has been resurrected. The hoax is spreading on Facebook, other social networking websites and the internet like wildfire. If the Facebook post shows up on your Facebook Wall/Timeline, please do not share it, comment on, or "like" the post. This is because the message will not do anything for you and will only help spread this bogus message to your Facebook friends.
Please continue reading below.
According to Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, you own all of the content and information that you post on Facebook, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings.
Due to the fact that Facebook has chosen to involve software that will allow the theft of my personal information, I state: at this date of January 4, 2015, in response to the new guidelines of Facebook, pursuant to articles L.111, 112 and 113 of the code of intellectual property, I declare that my rights are attached to all my personal data drawings, paintings, photos, video, texts etc. published on my profile and my page. For commercial use of the foregoing my written consent is required at all times.
Those who read this text can do a copy/paste on their Facebook wall. This will allow them to place themselves under the protection of copyright. By this statement, I tell Facebook that it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, broadcast, or take any other action against me on the basis of this profile and or its content. The actions mentioned above also apply to employees, students, agents and or other personnel under the direction of Facebook.
The content of my profile contains private information. The violation of my privacy is punishable by law (UCC 1-308 1-308 1-103 and the Rome Statute).
Facebook is now an open capital entity. All members are invited to publish a notice of this kind, or if they prefer, you can copy and paste this version.
If you have not published this statement at least once, you tacitly allow the use of elements such as your photos as well as the information contained in the profile update.
In November 2012 when the hoax first appeared, Facebook issued the following statement:
There is a rumor circulating that Facebook is making a change related to ownership of users' information or the content they post to the site. This is false.
Anyone who uses Facebook owns and controls the content and information they post, as stated in our terms. They control how that content and information is shared. That is our policy, and it always has been. Click here to learn more: www.facebook.com/policies.
