Dan Bashaw replied to Robert Holbach's discussion QR Codes - potential for lawsuits?
"Very good points, and in general I agree. Here at Brescia we identified a 'test use case' for QR: When students pile off the bus from main campus, they all have smartphone in hand, so we created a simple  'Daily Brescia' web…"

Robert Holbach replied to Robert Holbach's discussion QR Codes - potential for lawsuits?
"To be honest, I have yet to see a QR Code which has enhanced my life, as a user. It's easier to find bad examples of QR codes than good ones. (A railway station in Bristol replaced all the timetables on platforms with QR Codes, so you could…"

"With the usual caveats about not constituting legal advice, etc., I feel confident about using QR codes here in Canada without any particular concern over legal issues. With regards to this specific lawsuit you could always link to the full URL, and…"

QR Codes - potential for lawsuits?

Came across an interesting story on the BBC today:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-23898080"Patent trolls take out generalised patents, often on widely available technology, and then demand money from companies who use or offer it. Shops and restaurants have been targeted for displaying QR codes and online store-locators...." After which I tried to find out what the QR Code issue was. Which led me to this blog post:…See More

Web forums / social features / student contribution areas

Hello I work on the content provision and editorial area for a student portal at a university in the UK - Glamlife. Our portal has a lively and active classifieds board, and a presence on Facebook and Twitter (where we feed out stories, and respond to students if they comment / have queries), but that is pretty much the extent of our social provisions.

Facebook and Twitter linkup for public profiles

Hello I am one of the admins of our student portal's Facebook public profile (https://www.facebook.com/uniglamlife) and our Twitter account (https://twitter.com/glamlife). A while ago, I set things up so our Facebook updates syndicate out to our Twitter account. I believe I set this up in Facebook, but for the life of me, I cannot find where that setting is at the moment. Not sure whether that's due…See More
