Wellington: Copyright experts have dismissed the post that is going viral on Facebook claiming to protect users' copyright over their own photos as sheer nonsense saying that it is not worth posting on the site.
According to Stuff.co.nz, such posts keep cropping up from time to time whenever Facebook makes changes or announces that it will make changes to its privacy settings.
Variations of the viral post were first spotted in 2012 and resurface time and again.
Many users across the world are posting the viral message on their walls that claims to protect their copyright over their pictures.
A Facebook spokeswoman said that the site's terms and conditions are plain and simple as it clearly states that the individuals that use the site own the copyright in what they post.
