Personal Photo published online in a newspaper
« on: December 26, 2014, 11:33:47 PM »
Hi,

I had taken few pics with some bollywood celebrities and shared with my Friends on Facebook.

A day later a leading daily has got their hands to the photo and published it on their portal with a headline - xxx Celebrities are on a vacation -(my photo being published without prior permission). I am offended!

Can the newspaper be sued and what level of punishment/compensation can I ask for this.

Thanks for the response.

I have not done any copyright for the photos. These were personal pics that I was sharing with friends on Facebook and posted on Twitter.

The news daily went and copied the pic from my Twitter feed.

How do I go about filing an infringement?

fine both twitter and facebook provides the date for publication of the photos in their website that will be sufficient evidence.

go ahead hire a lawyer take printouts of both facebook/twitter page where the photo is published and the date showing.

best of lucky sue them for a huge sum
