Book mark: Don’t Film Yourself Having Sex and Other Legal Advice for the Age of Social Media by by Emma Sadleir and Tamsyn de Beer

Dont Film YourselfFor many of us the internet is an integral part of our everyday reality. Accessible and highly entertaining, Don’t Film Yourself Having Sex is a must-read in the digital age, especially if you have children or are planning to marry Kate Winslet. Without excessive legalese, the authors give an overview of our on- and offline rights and responsibilities, and what consequences ignoring either might have for us as digital citizens. They offer practical advice on how to profit from the amazing medium and to have all the fun online without ruining your reputation, losing your job, having your identity stolen, being sued for damages, or becoming the laughing stock of social media. They also tell you what to do when something does go horribly wrong. ‘I had no clue’ won’t work as an excuse.
