Katie here has got over 20K followers on Instagram who just love her candid take on whichever European city she’s cavorting in on any given weekend. She’s uploaded over 1,600 photos and videos.  

The question is, who owns the photos you upload to Instagram? You, right?? Not so quick my legally inept content creator. It is never quite so simple when dealing with these massive corporations. They use some pretty underhand legalese to make it so they have the right to use it in its promotional activities, but it can also transfer or sub-license those rights to its partners. This means whilst you technically own the picture they can do whatever they want with it. According to the T&Cs of both Facebook and Instagram, any profit that is made as a result of using your content will not be shared with you. . 

Just remember kids – nothing is free in this world, Especially when you’re dealing with monolithic tech companies. Thinking about it I’m pretty surprised we aren’t charged per email…

The joke

Why did the bald man put two rabbits on his head?

Because from a distance they look like hares!

Back in the summer of 1982 Archie here conceived and copyrighted the above joke. You’ve got to admit it’s got a certain something. Anyway, despite the fact that earnings have been decreasing in recent years, due mainly to the influx of cheap memes, he’s still got enough to get by. Just about. In order to finally retire in Marbella he’s going to need a new joke. One that’ll see him through his retirement comfortably. He’s going to have to put on his thinking hat…

Archie was conceived and created as a little thank you note in an attempt to be more engaging with our clientele. I wish him well in his new home… 

Cheers
