Pictures used without permission on dating sites
In theory, the pictures are copyrighted by you or your organization; therefore, you (or a lawyer) should be able to draft DMCA notices and forward them to the website owners, the search engines, and the web site’s ISP.If nothing else, you should email the search engines and the porn web sites and request that the information be removed.
This trick will allow you to do a “Reverse Image Search” for any image and see a list of all other sites on the internet where the image appears. You will then be able to see all the other sites on the internet that are using this image.
Here is how it happens and what you can do about it.
As more and more publicly identifiable information is being placed on the internet, evil people are using this information to promote porn websites.
The advertisement would suggest that Bonita had erotic pictures inside when actually the young lady’s name and picture were stolen off her employer’s web site and are being used without her permission.
In a related scam, pictures and names are being harvested with web scraping bots and then being used to create profiles on myspace or other social networks.
Unless the information needs to be search engine accessible, hiding the content from bots in rich media such as Flash is another option.
