DFM chat on fair use and the use of photos in the age of social

Screengrab from Romenesko. SUE ME.
Journalists, members of Digital First Media and pretty much everyone else who wants to - are going to be taking part on the weekly Twitter chat Wednesday at noon, Eastern Time.

Today we're talking about fair use in the age of social: Can you tweet that photo? Can you use that screenshot online? What about in print? Can you use a photo or screen grab from a Facebook profile if the user is dead? What are YOU unsure about?

The live feed is posted below. But you can also follow the chat here or here or also here. And you can also check out past chats over here.

If you want to chime in, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can appear below.
