From Sullivan Daily Times:
Q: What’s the legal status of Facebook photos? Can the newspaper use them for a story?
A: Facebook will recognize the copyright attached to photos, even if they are posted on Facebook. You probably are OK for news used under a fair-use argument but could be in trouble if you use the photos for advertising.
