Lilly-livered law can’t help protect your public image

Sometimes you wonder who your friends are. London’s Metro newspaper reports that someone pinched a woman’s pictures off of Facebook and plastered them all over a fetishists‘ website, along with a hapless chap’s mobile phone number. The pictures apparently showed nothing more titillating than the lady pottering around her house, but the message on the FetLife wall said she would “do anything” to become a porn actress. Complaints to the police brought a shrug of the shoulders – apparently, no laws have been broken. How about libel and/or defamation?
