Is it possible to claim for infringement when someone posts your viral message?
I guess the argument would be 'yes, if they did it for commercial gain'. But then if it's posted to a site upon which commercial messages are an integral part of the make-up and content, then would that still hold water?
Can something that is distributed into the public realm in that way that a viral message is be 'stolen' by means the same means?
Or have I completely missed the point (and I may well have done)?
