Who Owns Your Image on the Internet?

Recently heard aprogram on NPR, called the talk of the nation, about people who have had to deal with internet stardom/notoriety because of starring in a popular YouTube videos.

Its an interesting program that highlights what happens when users really don’t control their own images/reputations (see also this previous article) and how Internet with its ease of communication can really amplify this effect. I guess we are really living in a global community and Internet is really redefining the meaning of viral spread of ideas.

What do you think?
