Can I get sued for slander if I talk about someone on my Facebook without using names? by playgroundfunn Q:

A: Actually, yeah, if you reference specific events particular to that person, especially if other people were there or witnessed what happened. Just because you don't name names doesn't mean you can't get into trouble.

If you sued facebook...? by Q: Under Privacy *Facebook allowed a user to post a video of my father which was used to slander him and they refuse to remove it (without the permission of him, and his face was not censored like it should be without legal consent) If it worked out, and we won, how much do you think we would recieve? (we have great attournies provided to us) Matress, they are refussing to remove the video that is giving him a bad name. At the least, they wont blur out his face. Once again Matress, you are not listening. They are stating false accusations about him during the video, not him doing stupid stuff caught on video. They are dangering his reputation, not him doing so himself. I appoligize. i just noticed ive been saying Matress instead of Mistress. Sorry. Only took a glimpse at the name. Wow you guys dont get it. First off he didnt do anything, the recorded the video of THEM SAYING stuff ABOUT my father. HE DID NOTHING! and you can record something without a persons consent, but you cannot broadcast it until you have it, otherwise, it is to be blurred unless demaded by court/law. The part above are for the people that continue to post that he shouldnt have done something to cause a bad reputation after i repeativly told them they were doing all the talking. Im not saying facebook is at fault for the video. but they have refused to take it down and that concerns me.

A: Facebook is immune from lawsuit for defamation posted by others, according to the Communications Decency Act (the part that wasn't struck down). If they're violating copyright, i.e., using the video without permission of the author, then they can be sued for copyright infringement, along with the person who posted the video illegally, if they do not properly respond to the copyright complaint.

Doesn't it make you feel better that Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook are getting sued for ripping off investors? by Q: Zuckerberg has screwed every one he has come in contact since the day he stole the idea of Facebook. I guess that's what liberals are best at... http://money.cnn.com/2012/05/23/technology/facebook-lawsuit/index.htm?hpt=hp_t1

when some one posts a lie about another on facebook, can they be sued? by littleredridinghood92 Q: was told to get off the pills, i never use pills & she knows this. she was being a hateful smart alec, unfortunately most every one i know saw this remark she made..what can be done legally about this ? the comment was not made in a joking way...this person is a rude, disrespectful brat of 15...and her mother sees nothing wrong with anything she says or does...her dad isn't even allowed to say anything to her about what she has done

A: Grow up.

Can Facebook sue you for violating their terms of use? by Q: And is it fraud to provide false information?

A: No, and no. A violation of their terms is a violation of contract, and the most they can do is delete your account. And since there is no legal requirement that you provide proper information, it is not fraud unless you are purporting to be someone who you are not and impersonating them / using their information to harm, etc.

could a person or persons get sued for hacking another persons youtube, yahoo, or facebook account? by Q: If someone did this could they be sued? the main question is for the youtube one...but anymore information would also be useful

A: Anybody can be sued for anything. ~ But they have to prove loss to get any money.

Should I greet this girl a happy birthday on my Facebook even if she didn't greet me on mine? by Q: Our birthdays are only three weeks apart. She had to know about it since we both share 30 friends, most of them who greeted me. Also, I noticed she is always on facebook sue to the links she is always posting. Btw, we used to hang out a lot in high school along with seven other friends. Should I still greet her despite her ignoring my birthday?

A: You should and be a good friend, show her you still care even if your apart. Just because she didn't post a happy birthday, could mean she forgot or couldn't get on that day. Just because one little thing, shouldn't change the way you act toward others.

Are you going to quit playing Scrabulous on Facebook now that it is being sued by Hasbro? by Future Citizen of Forvik Q:

A: It's the only ethical thing to do. I know I would be peeved if I rightfully bought the rights to something, or invented something, and somebody comes along with a cheap knockoff. People want everything for free online; music, games, programs, etc... wtf is wrong with society?

Can you get sued for cursing someone out on facebook? by Q: Because the girl i cursed out called me the B word so then i cursed her out and she said she was going 2 sue me... can she do that??? but this was like month ago and she said if im not nice 2 her she will sue me.. but isnt that blackmail?? just plz someone answer me I need your help:(

A: I doubt it. If you persistently curse her out on facebook, then she could have you charged with harassment. But since this was just the one time, No. Don't believe her! She cannot sue you! Most likely, she can't even afford a lawyer.

How do you sue facebook? by Snot Stopit Q: Facebook won't let me put my "interested in" as Sexy fat mamas so how do I force them to do it? Like sue them or something?

A: Have fun getting laughed at in your face and right out of the office if you try to sue Facebook.....like a bunch of billionaires are going to take that seriously? No way.

Can I get sued for accessing someone's facebook, yahoo, myyearbook accounts? by Dakota Y Q: My boyfriend gave me a password so I could help him with homework. But when I suspected he was cheating, I tried the one password he gave me...and turns out it works for his email, facebook and myyearbook. And yeah, he talks to so many girls! So I told a couple of the girls that he was a player and cheater, and he discovered. Can I get sued? I'm 20, he's 18. The state is Washington, USA. Can I get sued???

A: Probably not, but you can get for probably anything! Your defense argument would be pretty strong, though :p

Getting Sued Over Facebook For "Defamation Of Character":? by Q: This past weekend, my sister stumbled upon a comment posted from my roommate to a girl that she was friends with on Facebook. We were all mutual friends, so it was easy to see the wall-to-wall. She said "Guess who has two bat sh*t crazy roommates?! Moi!!". That angered my sister and I, so I posted a status of Facebook saying that I may be bat sh*t crazy but at least people like me and that she should get off of her fat a** and do something with her life instead of complaining how miserable she is to her mother. She threatened us over a Facebook message mind you, after people commented leaving their opinions on the matter of my status (also, this status did not have her name on anywhere in the status), that she would sue us for defamation of character if we didn't stop talking about her in a "public forum". My questions are can I be sued for this if I didn't even mention any part of her name as well as stating an opinion? Plus, can't I countersue for also being "defamed" over a comment, being called "bat sh*t crazy", in a public forum? Is this girl just trying to threat or can she make a case out of this and win?

A: And exactly where is everyone going to get the thousands of dollars in legal fees and expenses necessary to establish a defamation case? No one is going to do anything because of the tremendous financial cost and anyone who is wanting and able to move forward with litigation in the face of the substantial costs is "bat sh*t crazy" in which case truth is an absolute winning defense in actions for defamation..... Good Luck!

Can i cancel competition on facebook page without worries, that i'll be sued? by Q: Question is very simple... i wanna start competition with nice prize on my facebook page and then cancel it.. can i?

A: The question is simple, the answer is not. So I'll just throw out this scenario. "Take my survey and be entered to win a free iPad!" make bank off of surveys close facebook page everyone that knows you hates you.

My cousin is suing Facebook for 5 million dollars because someone tried to steal his identity? by Q: When my mother told me this story I couldn't believe it. I don't know if he's already sued and won, but as the story goes, he's going to be suing for 5 million dollars. Do the rest of you wish you could have that chance? Laura: its possible that he might have, but I don't know the whole story! Rookerman: I didn't say he was my "brother," I said he was my cousin. Gellex: I guess you're making sense!

A: He won't win? His information is his personal responsibility, not Facebook. And Facebook tries hard to make sure people don't have their privacy violated. I don't use facebook often or at all really because I don't like it, but this lawsuit is ridiculous and he won't win. This is what i hate, everybody is so eager to call a lawyer and try to sue someone for something that was their fault to begin with. It's just like the old lady from mcdonalds who spilled coffee so she sued. If law suits like this keep winning I will lose my faith in humanity. That being said, some companies do deserve to be sued because they are doing something wrong, but facebook hasn't done anything wrong yet. You don't have to use it, tell your cousin to stop being a stupid baby and take responsibility for his own actions instead of trying to get some "Easy Cash".

Could I get sued for using a copyrighted image on my facebook profile? by Clueless 1 Q:

A: You could get sued, but it is most likely that facebook will just suspend your profile !

Can I sue facebook for a fake profile of me? by Q: Someone created a fake profile of me and is putting bad things as my description. Can I sue facebook for this?

A: Facebook doesn't know who 'you' are, how are they supposed to know it's not YOU who have the fake profile? In short, Facebook provides the site, users provide the information, and Facebook takes (nor should they) no responsibility for the identity of their users.

Can Facebook get sued for this? by tasha_trois Q: I just created a new hotmail account and it didn't stop me from taking the name so I guess it was available. I went to create a facebook account, but it said that the email address I used was already in use for another account. So it sent me a reset password for the account. The profile that the email address was linked to is not mine. It's of some lady from I don't even know where. I can access all of her private information, her friends, and pretty much just use her profile as her. Could Facebook get sued for this? Lol I hope so, university is frickin expensive!!

A: yes yes yes, obviously a breach of privacy. you should contact Gloria Allred; she will appear on TV and win you millions $$$!!!!

Can i sue Facebook if someone posted a picture with me semi-nude on his profile ? by Q: a friend of mine got a picture with me semi-nude and posted it on facebook. today i entered facebook and saw it. What can i do with this ? who can i sue ?

A: You can sue a ham sandwich if you want to. However, lawsuits are designed to compensate you for your losses. Frankly, a semi-nude photo that someone first took of you (unless it was in a place where you had an expectation of privacy) and then posted on the internet is not actionable, because you did not suffer any loss because of it. I'm going to recommend that you get over it. - Stuart

Can You get someone Arrested,Sued or Fined for putting your picture on there facebook profile? by #1 NJ Devils Fan Q: My friend saved a picture of me and him and my basketball team on his computer and cropped me out so its just me as his profile picture and i was wondering if i can get him in trouble for it by the law??? PLEASE HELP

A: No, but if he is trying to make people think that is your profile he can have his account deleted on Facebook. That is about all you can do. He isn't committing a crime or doing anything that could get him sued.

Can a person sue Facebook for unauthorized distribution of personal information after deleting the account? by Q: The question says it all. Can you sue Facebook for giving out your personal information after you have COMPLETELY deleted your account (which is possible)? Isn't it a violation of privacy?

Am I able to sue Facebook for refusing to remove pictures of my children posted by someone else? by Q: There's a person on Facebook that has pictures they took specifically of my children posted on their Facebook and is claiming to be their mother. I already contacted Facebook telling them to remove them weeks ago and they refuse. This lady is psychotic and local PD won't do anything about it. Can I sue for Facebook not protecting mine and my children's rights and if so who do I contact?

A: Not such a good idea, facebook has many lawyers since it's a famous website, and many people trial for court for reasons like that many other. The best thing to do is make your son sign a form with his full name and send it to facebook. Then they will probably ban the account.

getting sued for uploading pictures on facebook? by Q: ok well im 17 in ga and i uploaded a picture of my teacher on facebook dancing on a chemistry lab table and now it got around to him so he took it to the school and is threatening to press charges! i now has 3 days of in school suspension and if he presses chargers hes going to sue and i can go to jail! is that allowed and what can i do to prevent this!

For facebook could I download a picture like a fish tank or is it copyrighted meaning I could get sued? by Successor Q: I mean if the fish take is copyrighted and I want to use it as my profile picture but I am not like claiming it's my picture or anything. I am not saying I am the author of the picture.

A: I think you can put whatever you want as your facebook profile picture. It's not as if you're using it to make any money.

how easily can one be sued for comments made on facebook? by Q: how far would you have to go on facebook for taking up a civil lawsuit against you. In bitterness i said some stuff in messegas to these rich kids from my highschool who either bullied me or were brats the comments were made in personal messegas not on a wall where everyone could see them thus. according to law i dont think they have a case

A: Well personally my opinion is that they would have to go pretty far to get sued.. But if its something that makes you want to go suicide or something then maybe that's good enough.

Can I go to jail or be sued for putting a threat on Facebook? by Q: I made a threat to someone and I used the phrase "make him pay" could I go to jail or be sued? Well im in 9th grade and its the first time iv ever done anything like this. The kid I was talking about got my favorite teacher suspended

A: jail - no sued - maybe depending on the context, past history and your intent

I'm getting sued for posting a video on facebook and youtube of a fight what do i do? by Q: I need help to i dont know what to do.

yahoo sued facebook!!!!!!! who will win? by Q: yahoo, that's right this website maker has recently sued facebook, (very recently) who do you want to win? i hope yahoo wins. i don't have a facebook account and obviously have a yahoo account so that's why i want yahoo to win the case. so who do you want to win and why?

A: Facebook ! İ love yahoo answers and i do use yahoo weather app on my phone but all my friends are on face, i recently moved abroad, facebook is a great way to keep in touch for free With friends From all over the world, share tons of pics etc. Also the vast amount of Pages and groups! My uni has a page from where you follow daily news about the uni! My study group have a group Account so we can easily Chat and share the work we have done! İ rely on facebook far more then yahoo, so no matter how Much i like both of them , i NEED facebook!

Can i be sued for posting a naked pictures of my 20 year old ex girlfriend on Facebook? by Q: I did not use her last name, and it did not show her face.

A: Yes if she can prove it was you who did it as well as her body that was shown. Even if you didn't post her full name or show her face, it is still harassment. I am sure she would find a way to prove it was her body up there and even though Facebook would have already deleted the pictures (or are on their way to deleting them) if she saw them and saved them somehow you could be charged for it (if she wanted to get you in trouble).

Can you be sued for libel in Facebook? by Q: I have a friend. he was sued by a certain company for saying the word shit to the company. it was just his emotion because his uncle was fired to that company because of political reason (election). he is from the philippines. does cursing be libel? what are the chances this case be dismissed?

A: No! The word "****" is a jailiable offense and is often followed by a stiff prison sentence of 25 to life. I hope you have a good lawyer on hand, buddy!

Can facebook sue you for using your own pictures? by Q: When you upload a picture on facebook they get the rights to it. Does this mean that you need their permission to use the picture after that? And can they sue you for using it?

A: No, they cannot. You grant them a free license to the photo, you do not give them control over the original, which you still own.

why has'nt facebook sued sexbook ? by Q: Why is it that Facebook can sue Teachbook but they ha vent sued sexbook yet? Teachbook is a business and social network for teachers ad educational colleagues to trade teaching strategies, lessons, videos etc. If Facebook is so worried about image and other sites having the "face" or "book" word in their url or Domain name, why haven't they attacked the sex/porn giant : " sexbook.com" ? I have researched and found lawsuit copies provided for free to the public online of the lawsuit that Facebook had filed against many companies for usage of these two words in JULY22,2011. But "SEXBOOK" was not included in the suit. Anyone care to elaborate on this issue?

Can one be sued over a facebook comment? by Jessica R Q: My place of employment is corrupt and I was frustrated one day. 3 comments were made,...one of them by me. My friend went on my fb and said to kill a CG( my place of employment) b*tch would be bittersweet. I never deleted it bc i was so fed up with the place. I was fired over it. Could they sue? if so what are the odds of them winning?

A: Damages have to be proven. That is a bit difficult, but can be done. In the USA anyone can bring any lawsuits they want. Whether the court will hear it is entirely different.

did you know facebook is being sued? by Q: they are also not only being sued but when i called their message machine said the following "for customer service please hold" ......" we have no customer service at this time" hang up. i left a message saying their forums never help and i have a serious problem happening that no one can fix. i left my number and everything and they refused to call back, shows how much they care about anything but money. i hope they lose the law suit.

A: It doesnt surprise me at all that Myspace 2: Electric Boogaloo is being sued. Lets hope everyone remembers this when the next fail of the trilogy comes out.

Can you get sued for mentioning facebook in a feature film? by Q: I know you can mention movies but not show advertisements for them or a logo, and you can't show company logo's... but can you get in legal trouble for a character saying "I'll talk to you on facebook tonight?"

Can you get sued by a teacher for making a Facebook group petition to fire her? by Dj Q: Any ideas? I made on yesterday to fire a study hall teacher at my school and someone told me we could all get sued if she saw it.. is it true?

A: If you make clams that are not true, especially when the intent is to harm the person (harm her career, in this case), you can certainly be sued. If you don't make such claims, simply stating a preference is not something she can sue over. However, just stating the preference COULD get you expelled, since it goes beyond what would be considered appropriate for the school, and THEY have the right to set those limits.

How much did facebook get sued for? by Q:

A: Which lawsuit are you referring to? Your question is far from being complete. Please fully think and plan your questions before posting them so you get the kind of answers you really want. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Facebook is a multi billion dollar company. There are lawsuits filed constantly against large corporations and they have full time lawyers to handle the. Welcome to the real world.

Can i be sued if i put a video of a girl in school acting dumb on facebook? by remix Q: she was acting dumb on purpose and i told her im going to put this on Facebook and she kept on. when she saw i actually put it up she was mad and said i can sue u for that(shes not really) but i just want to known if its possible. Ps how about paparazzi and the press isn't it the same whoop!

A: She is not a public person, such as the regular press or the paparazzi would cover. There's no news interest exception. She has privacy rights. In my state, you cannot record someone without their consent. She is also a minor. And your school may have rules about this. Don't do it. Not just for legal reasons, but moral reasons.

Can you get sued over harassment through Facebook if you live in the USA while the victim lives in Asia? by auraming Q: I understand that it is possible for you to get traced over these things since your ISP has records of all your internet activities but is it possible for you to get arrested or face charges in the United States if a person harassed another person via Facebook of someone who lives in another continent like Asia? Is there a slim possibility to face criminal charges or getting arrested?

Can i get sued for writing on my facebook wall about my roommates? by Q: i don't have my roommates on facebook so i was venting about something that have been going on and now they are threating to sue me all a said was i wont kick there mom out .. she was living with us and i never said names ... i hope no one i know reads this >_<

A: Anyone can sue you for any reason whatsoever. They simply need to complete the proper paperwork and pay the court filing fees. Whether they win or not depends upon the strength of their case. If they sue for libel, your defense would be that you wrote the truth. Be prepared to prove you wrote facts.

Could I Get Sued for making a facebook page about Kpop artists? by Q: It's not like giving illegal links to there songs or writing bad things about them it just saying how much i love there music and posting picture of them. Will i get sued by their company or managers.

A: I'm not a lawyer or anything, but I think this could be a yes and a no situation. If you wouldn't put anything illegal or law-breaking on there, I don't see why you would get in trouble. There's hundreds of Facebook pages that aren't official pages made by the particular band. There is a chance that you could get in trouble if you do put illegal or Photoshoped photos of them up. Another way is, if you don't have permission from them you could. Although that is probably unlikely. They're not going to look through all the pages on Facebook to find one that doesn't have permission to be up. If it gets reported, then it'll catch Facebook's attention and they could contact the band. Well, as I said it's yes and no. Just be careful and responsible for what you post if you get a lot of followers. Have fun!

Can Pocodot get sued by Facebook? by Angel A Q: Can Pocodot get sued by Facebook because they have some of the same features and styles of Facebook? I signed up just to see what it looks like and they have IDENTICAL features as far as the 'update/comment on status' part and "Friends you may know"..so I was just wondering.

A: Unless they copied VERY closely the form and style of Facebook, copied trademarks, or used some very unique features, there is little Facebook can do. If it was an issue, the lawsuits would already be filed.

has anyone, who is disabled by mental illness (PTSD and Bipolar II for me) ever sued facebook? by Q: I am not interested in some get rich quick scheme, I just realized that young people as well as the mentally incapacitated might need more protection on the internet. not explaining myself well what if the user has no judgement and is basically having a flashback episode on the damn computer causing anguish to others as well as themselves without the intention that they are even doing it? I just was thinking that screening might be a good idea.

A: Its not facebooks obligation to provide extra protection like that. Its that persons problem, not facebooks. A case based on that would never make it to court, no standing.

Can you be sued over Facebook Harassment? by auraming Q: Can you be sued for Facebook harassment if you reside in the US while the FB victim lives in another country?

Can you be sued over a truthful Facebook accusation? by Q: Say my boss never paid me, then a month later I post a status on Facebook about how she and her two-man business took advantage of me, a high school student. The post is truthful, short and just asks them to pay me. Does this put me in a position to be sued? This was also the first and only post about them. She claimed she would take me to court for harassment, but from these details would she have a case against me?

Can I get sued for using myspace, facebook, or youtube logos on promotion material? by Alex Q: I am selling a promotional CD and I have my contact info listen. To make the CD look a bit more flavorful and exciting, I've included the respective logos of myspace, facebook, and youtube next to the links where people can reach me. Can I potentially get sued for putting their logo on this CD? The CD itself will cost $3 to purchase.

A: It's possible, but unless the material itself might somehow be viewed as damaging to a website's image (if such a thing is possible), I wouldn't expect it. First of all, you're really not gaining anything by using their logos. People aren't going to buy your CD just because they have those logos on them. That being the case, I doubt I would use them, myself. If you were using the logo of a professional sports team, or the Olympics, or even Campbell's Soup, they might, but I don't see those websites being the subject of "collectors." Second, they stand to gain if you do so. You're promoting them, whether you realize it and/or intend it or not. Unless the CD is something that might become the subject of a 60 Minutes segment asking "Why do we tolerate this kind of thing?", I doubt anyone will care much.

Should Facebook be sued for all of the marriages it breaks up? by Been there, don't want to go back Q: After all, people can choose to smoke all their life, with all the education out there, and when they get cancer, they sue the tobacco companies. What do you think? @ Amanda and Ryde_on - exactly my point. But do you want to bet money that someone will try, some day?

A: Waste of time. Same as suing McD's for making you fat, or a gun company for killing your sister, or volvo for killing your cat. There are all sorts of law suits like this, and very few winners on the plaintiff side. That being said, I detest FB and would be thrilled if someone won. :)

Can you get traced and sued over facebook overseas? by auraming Q: For example you're in China and you made dummy accounts and contacted an American's friends in facebook and told them that this person's mother is a whore, his father a bum, that his family is poor,etc. can your accounts be traced to your residential address in China and can you get sued despite being continents apart?

A: You can get traced for your activities on Facebook anywhere on earth. The internet is a universal activity. Facebook is owned and controlled by two fellows in California. If anything goes amiss anywhere in the world on Facebook then they are the ones who are contactable to do something about it. Also if you have to abide by the laws of the USA and various other countries in relation to what is listed on Facebook. A case in point in the last six months in Australia there have been three youth deaths and friends have put comments about their death on Facebook. Two of these deaths have occurred in the past couple of weeks and the Premier of the state of Queensland Australia has contacted the people at Facebook to do something about the abusive content of these entries. They have simply replied saying that it is a social networking site and it is not their responsibility. However, it does involve a teen murder and a child murder and is a serious matter in this jurisdiction. The Premier Anna Bligh is quite within her right to ask Facebook to take down abusive material about people - both of whom are minors and both of whom have been murdered. Facebook was less than co-operative. I doubt that they are going to be too worried about what you say about your Mum. However, if a future employer finds the material it could affect your employability and it does not reflect positively upon your character as a person to speak like that about the person who bought you into the world. Article re Premier Anne Bligh & Facebook http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/bligh-steps-up-pressure-on-facebook-over-trinity-bates-and-elliott-fletcher/story-e6frg6n6-1225834440162 http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/content/2010/s2830634.htm http://www.thepunch.com.au/articles/five-questions-for-facebook-after-tribute-pages-defaced/ I hope that this helps give you some examples of the abuse of Facebook. It is a great networking site and you should keep it that way so that when you do go overseas you can keep in touch with family and friends and put photos of where you have been up there and your friends and family will you are OK and having a good time. Happy travelling. Cheers!!! Wrong Action have consequences!!! In a virtual world you can be litigated virtually anywhere if what you say, or even imply is damaging to the good name and/or public persona of the person that it has been said about.

I'm being told I'm goIng to get sued over Facebook and this guy just posted my passport number. What do I do? by Jstevens Q: I'm not going to go into detail on why he's doing this, but this guy overseas is very upset at me and is threatening to contact an american organization to sue me. He posted my passport number on My Facebook wall, along with my birthday and some traveller organization info, just to prove he has my info or to scare me or something... What is the danger in this? Should I contact Facebook?

A: Delete the post on your wall and block the guy. Contact Facebook.

Could facebook be sued for acting slowly on a false profile? by Chris M Q: About a month and a half ago a fake, very convincing facebook profile was created under my sisters name. The girls actively posted things on other peoples walls, talked to other people, and even went as far as to call another girl. It has been over a month now since my sister reported her facebook profile numerous times, and they have yet acted on deleting it from their database. Could facebook be sued, or would the girls be the ones at fault in a hypothetical case?

A: Yes if you do know who these girls are then you can report it to your local police station & they can make a case out of it if its that serious. Hope this helps
