Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I know a phone number for this person but I don't know who it is.
We don't know why exactly this person is doing this. He isn't bashing my bf by any means...he's just acting like the pictures are him and they are not.
The person doing this had an instagram account for months and then just the other day, it was deleted. Not sure if it was by him or by instagram. And last night another instagram popped up and we knew it was the same person. But that has now been deleted. We would just like it to stop. Could the police do anything?
What would you suggest we do?
I've also heard that anything that is posted on a social media site that isn't copyrighted is fair game to anyone.
Ok. Thank you.
