If you are a French parent who likes posting their kid’s photos all over the internet, we have same bad news for you.
The Telegraph noticed that the privacy laws in France are pretty strict. How strict, you ask? Strict to the point that your offspring can sue you for infringing on their right to privacy if you posted photos of them when they were younger. And this is not a small offence either; penalties could ramp up to €45,000 plus a year in prison (where no photo sharing is allowed at all!). The judge would have to be convinced that you published some of your kids without their consent, but, who decides what’s private? And show me the parent that asks for permission before every my-kid-is-making-soap-bubbles-and-he-is-so-cute photo upload, and I will show you one kid who’s gonna spend years in therapy.
