How would you feel is someone stole your pics and edited them?

My cousin has a friend who copied some of her pics from Myspace and was trying to sell them an also edit the image. SHe was in a Halloween costume dressed as a nurse with sexy stockings on. Her face wasn't showing but still. Is there any legal action she could take?

  • I doubt there is legal action. If the pictures were posted on a public sight, you are basically giving permission for anyone to look and take unless you set up security settings.

  • You can watermark pix so they can't do that but no, there is no legal action you can take especially since they have no face on them. Public sites are targets for that sort of thing which is why you should watermark pix before posting them

  • I've had that happen to me actually. I had to have my photobucket account deleted. I marked all my Picasa web albums to "invitation only"...My pictures were stolen, doctored, and made into very unflattering movies on youtube, and doctored and put an amature porn site. I reported the person who was doing it to the government(if you need to, do a google search on internet harassment. If you see an address followed by .gov, check it out.) since then, that person only tried ONE more time to stalk me.
