I’m curious how other photographers out there interpret the different views concerning the new Facebook terms of service / privacy rules. On one hand, it seems atrocious. On the other hand, Facebook seems either misunderstood or completely naive on copyright issues.
I might buy the argument from Facebook’s perspective with regard to comments and messages, but they seem oblivious to photography and copyright protection. Am I missing something?
I’ve removed my images from Facebook for the time being. (I know, legally it’s too late and Facebook owns those images, which I couldn’t be more upset about.) I’ll post images on Facebook again once I am assured that I own the copyright to any images I post and Facebook only has permission to make posted images viewable.
