ReTweeters Of A Copyrighted Photo being sued

By now we should all know that taking someone’s photo and uploading it to social media is not cool (and not legal either). But what happens when you retweet or pin or share a photo that someone else stole? An interesting casenow presented to the courts of California may change how easily you retweet photos forever.

California based photographer Dennis Flaherty is suing beverage company Big Red Soda for allegedly posting one of his photos to social media without his permission. Nothing new here. If this is indeed the case, Dennis would probably have a walk in the park in court. What’s more interesting is that Dennis is also suing every single person who retweeted or pinned the photo.
