On this episode of The Law Enforcement Social Media Podcast and COPS on Blab, we discussed the legalities of the visual content we use in social media. Everyone, regardless if you are in the law enforcement community or not, uses copy, video, images and infographics in their content they publish for their communities, fans and followers.

However, is it legal to use someone else's photograph? Is it true that if you keep a song under 30 seconds, you are allowed to use it for your public service announcement video?

Some believe that if you give credit to the original artist, then you're okay to use the work. Is this really true?

Our guest this week is not only a personal manager for music artists, but he's an entertainment lawyer as well. Mr. Kamal Moo will be joining the crew this week for a great episode to discuss copyright law and the use of other people's work, like videos, pictures and music.
