A picture is worth a thousand words – so the saying goes.
Billions of photographs are uploaded to the internet every day. And because social media use is on the rise, so are the number of images being shared.
People like to share photos of themselves, their friends and things that they do.
But who owns the images you post? What can you do if someone posts images of you without your permission?
Copyright of images
Photos are generally protected by copyright. This means the person who took the photo usually owns it.
