    On-line Ad "Steals" Someone's Horse!

    So I'm cordially browsing my Facebook when a fellow artist and application-player, Brandy, posts something to my wall. The little icons aren't working so I don't know if she's posting a "genuine" post or something for a game. (You can see that it was the latter.)

    I look to the ads, seeing a beautiful horse picture, and OH! I've seen this picture here before, because I wanted to comment on the beauty of it. The photo belongs to the owner.

    Do any of you know whose horse this is? I'd like to contact them.

    The owner, if at their choice, can contact the company and demand the removal of the image of their horse by terms of infringement by the company (Equine-index.com) not having their explicit permission to use it. There have also been many occasions with artists where their artwork has been used without permission. Some have gone to court.

    Click here to see the full-scale image.

    Somone told me that there is a clause on facebook saying something about if you post pictures on their site they have a right to use them wherever/however they want...not sure if that's true.

    I'm not sure if that's true, either. But I saw the very image of someone's horse here. I know an artist whose artwork was illegally used for an ad and she never posted it on Facebook. The company itself did not create the add; it's likely a virus. I didn't click it, but I'd like for the horse owner to know about it.

    Concerning the use of the image on Facebook, if it was, in fact, never posted on Facebook itself, then yes - the rightful owner would have a case.

    In the thing you are required to agree to to create a Facebook account (ie. Facebook's Terms and Conditions) it states that any and all media that is posted on Facebook immediately becomes the property of Facebook and can be used whenever, where ever, and however they want without express permission. When I found this out, I immediately took down all of my poems and artwork I had on my Facebook.
