Sign Up and Manage your Copyright with your Facebook Profile
Published on 03.23.11
Getting a copyright is simple, it’s automatic, no paperwork required. Now we’re working to make protecting your copyright just as easy
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Facebook Connect to allow you to sync your Myows account to your Facebook profile.
First up there’s the obvious time saving advantage (no more lost passwords or sifting through all those usernames you’ve been collecting over the years). But there’s an added legal advantage too!
Part of Myows’ job is to link you with the Original Work that you created at the time at which you uploaded it. In fact, that’s the heart of what Myows does. We create and verify evidence that allows you to link yourself to the cool things you make and helps you protect them.
But who are you?
In terms of your Myows account, up until now, you’ve been a name, email address and password. If you’re extra thorough, you may also have recorded your address, date of birth and other particulars under the account tab. But now, by linking your Myows account to your FB account, you can establish your identity beyond reasonable doubt.
That will help prove that YOU were the one that opened your Myows account and YOU are the person that uploaded the OWs which Myows helps you protect. After all, it doesn’t get much more personal than your FB profile. (Of course, if you don’t feel confortable linking the two, you don’t have to. Your Myows account will still work exactly the same).
Syncing is easy – you’ll notice on the Myows signup/login screen a Facebook button at the top of the screen – click on this to link your existing Myows account to your FB profile. Once you’ve done this you’ll be able to access your Myows account using your Facebook login. No mess, no fuss… and if you’re a first time user, you’ll be able to create a new account off the back of your existing FB profile too.
The result: it’s now easier than ever to set up a new Myows account for first time users (feel free to spread the word).
