How are users influenced by social media platforms when they generate content, and does 
this influence affect users’ compliance with copyright laws?

These are pressing questions in today’s internet age, and Regulating Content on Social 
Media answers them by analysing how the behaviours of social media users are regulated 
from a copyright perspective. Corinne Tan, an internet governance specialist, compares 
copyright laws on selected social media platforms, namely Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, 
Twitter and Wikipedia, with other regulatory factors such as the terms of service and the 
technological features of each platform. This comparison enables her to explore how each 
platform affects the role copyright laws play in securing compliance from their users. 
Through a case study detailing the content generative activities undertaken by a 
hypothetical user named Jane Doe, as well as drawing from empirical studies, the book 
argues that – in spite of copyright’s purported regulation of certain behaviours – users are 
'nudged' by the social media platforms themselves to behave in ways that may be 
inconsistent with copyright laws.
