: I am a practicing FOIA paralegal. I have a question about Terms of Service notices on websites...if someone posts on a message board, is a reader bound by the TOS that state you cannot resell or redistribute the post? Are terms of service upholdable? Are they likened to a copyright?
: Thanks for the help.
I have not researched the question but it would seem to me that copyright is quite different and a contractual relationship may be enforceable.
