Copyright Committee:  The Ripple Effect of Content Going Viral and its Implications
Modern communication tools, particularly Social Networking Sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, give their users the vast opportunity to make content posted thereon become viral.

Do such forms of multiple and widespread sharing have any implications on copyright, and if so, what are these?
