This comment really floors me - by one Brian Snyder:

"Matthew, I am a professional Photographer. Once you post a photo on FB,Instagram,Twitter or any other Social Media site, it is considered public domain...."

Supposedly that was from this guy's lawyer. I don't buy it.

From this post:
https://www.facebook.com/TheKentucky...90259741010191

Which outlines FB's TOS. Yes, we grant FB a license to republish our work - that's needed to allow FB's software to make the photos appear on someone else's timeline. Not for users of FB to use the photos willy-nilly.

Honestly, the ignorance of copyright is frightening. These people think they're in the right.
