Miami, FL asked in Contracts, Copyright, Communications Law and Intellectual Property for Florida

Q: Did I break the terms of my iOS iphone EULA? Did I break copyright law?

In the recent past I have taken a picture (using my iphone camera) and also a video of a professional photo that I had made at a photo studio. I either uploaded this to my facebook messenger story or sent it via iMessage/text or facebook messenger to friends that I wanted to see it. I have also screenshot different things on my iphone including picture quotes and things like meme's.

Have a broken the Terms of my EULA with my iphone and will I have to stop using my phone. There are several sections of the EULA or End-User License Agreement that concern me.

A: Did your phone company tell you that you had violated their EULA? If not, I don't think you have to worry about it.
