By simply deleting the image, Facebook`s use is, as specified in the terms of service. The regional court ruled in favor of the photographer and ruled that sharing on Facebook is also copyright. By sharing the images on their own Facebook profile, the profile owner makes the images noticeable to people who visit their profile. This case has therefore set the precedent that if you share on your profile an image that does not belong to you without the author`s consent, you are violating the author`s copyright. In the politician`s case, the attempt to blame his colleague did not help his case either, despite his argument that he thought his colleague had permission to use the images. As we can see in point 3.3.1 of Facebook`s terms of service (April 2019 status) entitled “Permission to use content you create and share”, Facebook does not take possession of images that you post on their platform. . . .
