Views on Image Rights and Social Networks
10 months ago

Facebook announced a new ToS which would allow them to use any user information, including their images, and sale it for ads. Beyond the obvious ethical question whether FB should be simply allowed to sell private information for ads purpose, there is a more concrete question: whilst many pro photographers are using social networks to be recognised, many are struggling to make a living from their art, and despite this the new ToS from Facebook (and don't think that FB is alone there) would allow FB to just use without notice nor compensation photos from pros that are published on FB.

I'm sure there are various opinions around, but here is my take on the topic
