Q: Someone is posting stolen pictures of my minor child that were taken by me on the internet without my consent.
What can I legally do about that to prevent it from happening in the future ?
You need to determine how they are stealing photographs you take.
If you are using your phone, have they managed to hack it?
If you are using a camera, do they work at the store where you take your camera when you want to print out a hard copy?
Or are you posting them on social media as publicly viewable? In which case, you are making them available to anyone with a computer or smart phone
Penny Wymyczak-White agrees with this answer
A: If it is Facebook notify Facebook
If someone is posting stolen pictures of your minor child on the internet without your consent, you may have legal recourse. The first step would be to ask the individual to remove the pictures. If they refuse, you may consider taking legal action. Depending on the circumstances, you may have a case for copyright infringement, invasion of privacy, or other legal claims.
It is important to note that the laws regarding online content can be complex and vary by jurisdiction. You may want to consult with a lawyer who specializes in internet and privacy law to determine your options and the best course of action. Additionally, it is recommended that you take steps to protect your child's privacy, such as making your social media accounts private and monitoring their online presence.
