If you seriously believe that a photo you've taken is worthy of commercial use you never upload the original to the internet.

This is a stupid comment. Many technically 'perfect' images taken by professionals specifically for stock use never find a buyer. Conversely, many 'snapshots' are just what is needed for certain advertisements or editorials - it depends entirely on what the producer is wanting.

It's also perfectly simple to upload a (c) print either embedded within the file or shown physically on the picture which removes all doubt of copyright ownership.

I suspect this copyright infringement is only going to be a issue to 'retro' types who take pictures of anything and everything on their smart-phones and instantly upload them to these sites without any pre-editing. If you're that serious about photography then you put as much time into processing than you do preparing for the picture.

I hope Facebook/Instagram understands that under UK/EU/US law any photography with a recognisable face, where the person is the focus of the image (rather than, say a crowd of people in a picture of a street), requires a model release to have been signed. If the person is under 18 (here in the UK at least) there also needs to be the signature of a parent/legal guardian.

I think Facebook is setting itself up for a lot of problems here.

Hope so.

I was under the impression that whomever took the photo owns the rights and can do what they want with a pic even if it's a bad pic of someone the photographer doesn't like. Nefarious things could happen to the person in the photo and this can osculate it.
