A 18-year-old Austrian girl has sued her parents for allegedly posting pictures, including embarrassing and intimate images from her childhood, on Facebook without her consent, media reported.
The girl claimed that the parents made her life miserable as they have posted 500 pictures of her since 2009 on the social networking site.
In France, anyone convicted of publishing and distributing images of another person without their consent can face up to one year in prison and a fine of up to 45,000 euros.
This would apply to parents publishing images of their children too.

“They knew no shame and no limit and didn’t care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot -- every stage was photographed and then made public,” the girl was quoted as saying.
Despite her requests, they have refused to delete the photos, prompting her to sue them, she said, adding that her father believes that since he took the photos he has the right to publish the images.
