Can I Sue My Facebook Friend?


Q: If someone else uses my Facebook photo, can I sue?

A: Yes, IF you created the photos and you have obtained a copyright on them. The copyright can be filed immediately prior to filing suit, but to recover attorney’s fees and damages, the copyright needs to have been filed either within three months of the date of publication of the photos or before the act of infringement occurred, whichever is later.
