Lately, I’ve seen a resurgence of law speak via Facebook. It typically looks something like this:
This is so bad for so many reasons.
Let’s talk real. The Rome Statute is a treaty that established the International Criminal Court, which has been primarily responsible for the prosecution of war crimes. The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is not codified law. Rather, it is a recommendation of laws that should be adopted in the states. The UCC covers the sale of goods. If you want to look up the subsection of the UCC that’s referenced …it doesn’t even exist.
Neither the Rome Treaty nor the Uniform Commercial Code apply to privacy. At all.
Also, Facebook is now publicly traded. Not a “public entity.”
Bottom line: the only way to prohibit Facebook from using your content for the purposes it set out in its Terms is to not post it. And if you still have an issue with privacy, get off of Facebook and actuallybe private.
Does anyone else see the irony in complaining about privacy via social media?</>
