as its 'the outlaws' cant your partner just speak to them and ask for them to be removed
#2
would contact facebook as well as have them taken down like she says when u upload it says

By uploading a file you certify that you have the right to distribute this picture and that it does not violate the Terms of Service.
#3
also contact facebook telling them the situation and that you are seeking legal advice good luck
#4
I'm sure they will get the message if you brick their house.

She's hates them even more than I do!

You can click 'report photo' can't you?
#7
On every photo on facebook, there is a 'report this photo' button so if you click that on every photo and desribe the situation then facebook will remove the photo.
Im not sure how quickly they do this but im guessing fairly quickly.
It seems the best and easiest way, as if you can do it without legal help tsurely its better and cheper???
#8
just outta interest where did they get the pics from? did they take em if so i guess they can argue they own the pictures and that you allowed them to be taken.

Still im sure they cant just go posting them all over the internet as they please

Hi,

On the bottom of e very photo there is a report button. I'm assuming this is for if you are unhappy with it.

Hope this helps.

This is one of man reasons wh I can't be doing with these types of sites.

They're not social & they don't network.

Good luck harlzter - hope you sort it. I'd be flipping jumping.
#12
Report them!!!!!!!!!!!!
#13
Sorry to detract from this important subject.
But can somebody put me straight on something, as it is bugging the hell out of me.
I though as the joke goes, that the 'inlaws' were the problem, as the 'outlaws' were wanted?
Or am I having a bit of a blonde moment! :oops:

If you start a new account in with a name something like "Garyy Glittter" and write to them asking about the children - I guess they would soon remove the pictures.

No they can't, that's why schools nowadays have to have signed consent for including your kids photo's in things like the newsletter.


That's probably because a school newsletter would be considered 'commercial use' so they ask permission to cover themselves. Read any newspaper, look at the photos, do you think permission was given for any of therm? It's highly unlikely.
#16
there are many factors but pics of kids need parental permission in this case and news letter. When the law was changed about 5 years ago i worked for the council and all sports events or kids parties had to become a camera free zone unless a ton of forms were completed and permission of all parents was given

I also would like to see this 'law'. In the case of schools etc it's private property so they can make 'rules' regarding this but not 'laws'.

facebook wont do anything to remove these images - the photographer holds copyright on images, so they have the rights to do as they wish, you have to give reason when you report a photo, it isn't your image so no breach of copyright, its not an indeicent image so facebook couldn't give a monkeys and they wont go to the time or effort to remove them for reasons stated in this thread.

If you do want them removed then you're gonna have to do it legally but this may be a long drawn out court battle becuase you're gonna have to incinuate (always wanted to use that word but have no idea how to spell it) that they have posted these images in a sinister manner.

You only have to look at the way the papperazi behave to gain a logical stance on this, okay they dont take images of minors but you get the idea.

I would like to see it too.
I would say it would depend how/when the photos were taken, as long as there are no child protection issues and no breach of privacy then I don't think legally there is much can be done, having said that I have no idea if fb vet each report or just remove them when a report is recieved.

ok stand corrected, they are able to picture minors but its very rare they'll ever be published.
