Selling Means Ownership?

If Facebook sells our data, does that mean Facebook owns our data and does that mean Facebook is liable, legally, morally, socially, physically, financially, for any of our things which they steal and profit from?

For example, if I upload photos, videos, articles, or anything, whatever, fill in the blank, to Facebook, and if that, all of that, any of that, does in fact become the property of Facebook, then what if I upload illegal stuff, porn, murder, racist stuff, unsafe stuff, politically incorrect things, children rape, how-to build bombs videos, instructions, black market drugs information, or whatever, then does Facebook become an accessory to crimes, to potential crimes, to ongoing investigations, or what have you?

Safe Harbor For Stolen Things?

Does the Safe Harbor Law apply to your own things?

Safe Harbor, and specifically the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), is all a disclaimer which allows, at least in theory, companies, social media giants for example, like Facebook, to allow users of those social platforms to upload stuff without being responsible, legally, as in liable, for the actions of their users.


I think Steemit has it too. But Steemit doesn't sell like Facebook. But does Safe Harbor apply to things that are stolen and sold?

Not Removed? Still Sold?

My argument, my question, is in concerning things that are no longer the property of users.

They Ban Me For It But Still Sell It?

So, if I upload a bad thing to Facebook, then Facebook could ban me or delete the bad thing. Facebook can do what they want to do and they can follow laws as well. So, if it is illegal or something, then Facebook may not be liable because of the Safe Harbor thing.

Selling Illegal Stuff?

But if Facebook is selling the illegal thing, then are they not the owners of the illegal thing? If they ban me, delete my evil item off Facebook, but still keep a copy of it on hard drives, on servers, online, offline, in computers, or wherever, and are still selling the info of it to different countries and corporations and organizations and advertisement groups around the world, then are they not violating the terms of Safe Harbor or anything else that may apply?

Interesting question @joeyarnoldvn.

While morally yes you would be liable... From a legal stand point. That would make for an interesting debate!

Did you watch the Facebook trial?
The perfect definition of legal and moral obligation. Suckerburg is happy to hand out our addresses for his personal gain. Yet when asked by a Senator, suckerburg would not even disclose the name of the hotel he stayed in during the court case.
No regard for anyone's privacy but his own.
Didn't suckerburg also buy all the properties around his own house for privacy reasons?

I'm not surprised he is paranoid about his privacy when he treats ours like arsewipe.

Do you really think Mark is the mastermind and that he is not a puppet like Obama and Soros as the kind of people designated to take the blame while the real enemies are hiding under our noses or beyond? Yes, I do follow the trials and everything.

Most certainly makes stop and think, huh?

I just want my stuff back. They stole it. They still have it. I cannot see it.

Download your Facebook history. Takes a few hours... And even though we know they collect our data... I think you'll still be surprised with the amount of information they have storred on you, your friends and family just from your profile download alone.

I was shocked when I saw that at random times they had turned on the mic on my phone and recorded conversations being had while not even using my phone. 15 seconds here and there... Sometimes a little longer.

I wonder if there are key words that trigger your phone to start recording?

How do you open Facebook files after downloading your FB data? Is it just text info or a word document or what kind of files?

Pictures, audio, video... Everything, the zip file takes a few hours to download.... And we have pretty fast internet.

I've uploaded so many videos and photos over the years to Facebook. Many hour long live streams each day. So, there could be a lot there.

Can we send Facebook to jail for something?

I think this are some of the issues people just ignore. People should be more aware about their security and privacy in social media, it's a scary thing to think that somebody is keeping data about you and you don't know it.

What do you think about the 9th & 10th amendments on returning rights back to local levels for we the people from the federal tyranny of deep state?
