Could this be TRUE about Facebook or just Rumors?

I always try to copyright the photos i post and use tag the pic with GEO codes that is in the automatic setting in most cameras. This will not stop the unauthorized use of ones property, however lowering the quality of the photo may deter a greater widespread use of posted pics, never the less we should keep an eye on these events.

Vegas Bob just read in a story someone posted about Facebook, and I am hoping these are just rumors!

Here is just a short paragraph from the post …

Facebook will be making changes on Friday April 29,2011 to take publishing rights of your photos.

Could this possibly be TRUE?

How can Facebook take publishing rights from members photographs when there not Facebooks to begin with? I really think this may just be a rumor because if you were to take the Millions & Millions of members and slap a (Law Suit) on Mark Zuckerberg & the owners of Facebook, they would lose Millions & Millions of dollars …

Please say it isn’t so and if it is Vegas Bob will have a HUGE nest egg when he retires … ;o)

Could these bad rumors about Facebook be TRUE?

I am hoping this isn't right.  If enough people make a wave about this facebook should respond.  Seems to me I have heard something like this before and FB did respond in a positive manner.  Of couse it could be like raising taxes, you may have to try four or five times until you achieve your goals.  Just a thought.

Usually you would treat this statement as a rumor or a hoax.

But you are talking about Mark Zuckerberg, who once referred to Facebook Users as "Dumb F----".   

And, Facebook is notorious for re-setting your Privacy Settings, without your knowledge or consent.

Keep an eye on the Facebook TOS and the EULA.

I remember reading last year about something similar.....that Facebook takes ownership of all photos/content that are uploaded to their site.  I'll have to look into this latest update to see what has actually changed.  Those pesky "agreements" we are sometimes too quick to say "yes" to actually do have the details buried inside.

Ouch!  That doesn't sound like a good thing!  If something is posted on FB, yes, it should be free game, but to be owned by FB is questionable~
