WWW FAQs: Can I put photographs and full names of people on my website?


2003-09-04: do not put the photograph and full name of anyone on the web without their permission. Such information is unfortunately frequently used by stalkers and other undesirables to locate people who do not wish to be found. The situation is different for celebrities, who have voluntarily entered the public eye and sacrificed this type of privacy; however, I am not a lawyer and cannot provide legal advice.
