I just saw a post by Phil Whitney:
ATTENTION:
Friday, Facebook will become owner of the publishing rights of ALL your
private photos. You need to make a simple change: go to 'account',
'account settings', 'facebook adverts'(along the top), 'ads shown by
third parties', choose 'NO ONE' then SAVE. 2 minutes' job. And please
Share share share. (for those who haven't done this yet.




I made the change.

Thanks Abe, I have taken the liberty just to clarify what you should do as some may find this a little confusing I know I did. Very Happy

Facebook has placed this highlighted under the adverts tab:

A note about your personal information
Despite what you may have heard, Facebook does not give your personal
information to advertisers — including your name, profile picture or any
of your photos.

Just scroll down to Adverts shown by third parties paragraph then click on the Edit third party advert settings at the bottom of the paragraph.

Then you will then see this statement:

Adverts shown by third parties
Facebook does not give third party applications or advert networks the right to
use your name or picture in adverts. If we allow this in the future, the
setting you choose will determine how your information is used.
You may see social context on third party sites, including in adverts,
through Facebook social plugins. Although social plugins enable you to
have a social experience on a third party site, Facebook does not share
your information with the third party sites hosting the social plugins.
Learn more about social plugins.

If we allow this in the future, show my information to


Only my friends

No one
Change the text in the box on the right to No one.
Simple!

Copyright law doesn't work like that. No one can simply appropriate a copyright that someone else holds.

I've seen similar claims in the TOS on other forums. That they own everything you post, including photos, and can use them elsewhere, such as in print versions of their magazines (I saw this on the Writers Digest message boards). I would think that agreeing to that TOS trumps copyright law.

This setting can be changed too:
Adverts and friends
Everyone wants to know what their friends like. That's why we pair adverts and friends — an easy way to find products and services you're interested in, based on what your friends share and like.
Here are the facts:

  • Social adverts show an advertiser's message alongside actions you have taken, such as liking a Page
  • Your privacy settings apply to social adverts
  • We don't sell your information to advertisers
  • Only confirmed friends can see your actions alongside an advert
  • If a photo is used, it is your profile photo and not from your photo albums

Edit social adverts setting

Does this have to do with my art gallery showing
my art? I changed it to no one, does this have to
do with strictly photos you own ? I'm confused ?

Cheers..Joe

It is confusing Joe but Facebook seems to have indicated that they may change their policy in the future hence the choice of friends only or no one.
I have yet to see what Phil saw that indicates a change coming on Friday.
There is always a chance that this is all a panic over nothing but it is always good practice to check your settings on Facebook because their default settings may contradict your requirements. Lots of folk don't even bother to look at them.

Thank you for the warning. I changed my settings--just in case.

Copyright law is specific. They imply that they automatically get exclusive rights to publish whatever you post. That just isn't so. They might have a right to publish whatever you post somewhere else (Facebook's Greatest Hits); there might be some implied license in the agreement (I haven't read it) but they cannot take away the rights of a copyright holder.

(I am not a lawyer. But I did sleep in a Holiday Inn Express last year.)

Sleeping in a Holiday Inn Express should qualify you to a free cup of coffee - at least.
