If you’ve been on FetLife for more than about ten minutes, you’ve probably seen a warning in various places on people’s profile pages. It usually reads something like this:
WARNING to any institution or person using this site or any of its associated sites: You do not have my permission to use any of my pictures, information from my profile or discussions, or anything I post in any of the forums or groups on this website in any form or forum both current or future without prior written consent. You do not have my permission to copy, save, print, or repost our pictures, discussions, or information without prior written consent. If you have done or do any of the above, it will be considered a violation of my privacy and personal property and will be subject to all legal remedies.
To give you an idea about how pervasive this “warning” is, in order to look for a copy of the text, I went down my FetLife feed and opened up the profiles of my five most recent friend additions. Four out the five had some variation of it on their profiles. If you are one of those people that has this “warning” on your profile, my advice to you is to get rid of it.
