In general, a meme is an idea, a thought or an element of a culture (an image, quote, symbol, joke, etc.) that spreads throughout society from one person to another virally, i.e., in school, work or the media. Internet memes are typically “viral” videos or graphic images spread over the Web that include humorous phrases or dialogue added by the creator of the meme. What are the legal implications of Internet memes for your company, either when it desires to use a meme for advertising or marketing purposes or when a meme is circulating that identifies your company?
