Facebook Lets Advertisers Use Pictures Without Permission 260

Posted by kdawson

Krokz sends in an LA Times piece that begins "A warning is bouncing through cyberspace today, landing on the Facebook statuses of many of the social networking site's users. The message: 'Facebook has agreed to let third party advertisers use your posted pictures without your permission.' It continues with a prescription of how you can protect your photos." The attention-grabbing incident in this furor involved a married woman, whose photo appeared in an ad for a dating service that was presented to her husband to view. Fortunately, both husband and wife had a sense of humor about it.

Well, the real television industry standard has been Betacam, not Betamax. There are two HUGE difference between the two: Betacam records in component format, while Betamax is composite, and Betacam records at a much higher tape speed. Although Betacam grew from Betamax, it's not fair to say that Betamax ruled television. That's like saying PS/2's have ruled computing for 20 years.
