Facebook Infringments

Has someone grabbed one of your images and posted it on Facebook without your permission?

On the Stockphoto blog Stacy Walsh~Rosenstock recently outlined a simple procedure for getting your image off the offending page.
    “If you come across one of your photos on Facebook that's been posted without your consent, (or violates FB community standards) just click on the image and bring it into the theatre view.

    “Then click on Options which will allow you to "report" the image. Facebook will investigate and report back to you within about 24 hours. If they find in your favor they'll remove the image.”
If the use was commercial, you may want to take screen shots before reporting it to Facebook so you can follow up with the user later and attempt to get compensation.??

Thanks Stacy for the tip.
