..until Facebook makes another "change" to their privacy policies or they "accidentally" allow private images to leak out.  It has happened in the past and it will happen again.

Hi Dave,

I don't know this for a fact, but I would assume that Facebook would be liable were images marked "private" "leaked" to the public, especially if they were allowed to be "sold" via these new available "services" by third-party providers.

I've not had that experience myself and each time there has been a privacy change I've been notified in advance and have been allowed sufficient time to make changes to my own settings. Perhaps that's not been the case for others - I can only speak from my own experience.

Best regards,
