Friday Factoid: Social Media Websites Receive High Marks For Processing Copyright and Trademark Infringement Claims

The Electronic Frontier Foundation recently published a report identifying steps that certain social media websites should take in response to claims of trademark and copyright infringement. For each website, the report noted whether the company requires a notice of infringement, documents its notice to the affected parties and publishes a report of its actions. WordPress received the highest rating (5 stars) and Facebook, Twitter and Instagram each received 4 stars, while Tumblr received 0 stars.
