Twitter has announced that there are changes on the way in its terms of service, which has sparked some debate online about the way the site can use content posted.
Chiefly, this statement about image usage and rights is in focus.
However, these aren't radical changes, with it being more of a case of people being unaware of the terms of service when they signed up.
Professor of Intellectual Property at QUT Matthew Rimmer told Triple M that this is a pretty stock-standard inclusion for social media terms of service.
"There's been a long history of battles in copyright law in regards to social media," Mr Rimmer said.
"I think there has been a misunderstanding in popular media about the nature of the change of the terms of service.
"That clause is there so that Twitter has some protection against claims in relations to copyright infringement. In some ways it's quite typical of user agreements in relation to social media, and it raises a question about whether this is a fair deal.
"There are still questions in terms of what happens when third parties use content on Twitter."
The new terms of service is in place from October 2 for countries outside the US.
