Here’s an overview of your rights and responsibilities for posts on LinkedIn’s publishing platform. Your LinkedIn membership and use of LinkedIn services like this one are subject to the LinkedIn User Agreement. Please refer to our User Agreement for full details.

  • Content published on LinkedIn’s publishing platform remains your work. You own the rights to any posts you publish.
  • LinkedIn may distribute your content, annotate your content (e.g., to highlight that your views may not be the views of LinkedIn), and sell advertising on pages where your content appears.
  • LinkedIn discourages and may disable posts that self-servingly advertise a service, business, political cause or other organization or cause that does not benefit the broader LinkedIn community. Learn more if you’d like to advertise your business or service with LinkedIn.
  • You’re responsible for the content of your posts, including any harm caused by you to others, or harm caused to you through your use of this service.
  • LinkedIn may restrict, suspend or terminate your LinkedIn account and/or disable your posts for any violation of the User Agreement.
  • LinkedIn will disable accounts found using infringing content.
  • Please do not share anything you don’t have permission to share. This includes other people’s posts, things that you have copied from the internet, or something that belongs to your employer and not you. Most content on the internet belong to someone, and unless you have clear permission from the owner to share it, you shouldn’t include it in your posts. You can republish something that you have published somewhere else as long as it is your original content that you own the rights to.
