According to The Local in Austria, the woman, who can’t be named, claims that her progenitors have posted some 500 images of her since 2009.
German broadcaster Deutsche Welle quoted her:
They knew no shame and no limits. They didn’t care if I was sitting on the toilet or lying naked in the cot: every moment was photographed and made public.
She says that her parents started sharing the childhood snapshots with their 700 Facebook friends when she was 11 years old. She’s responded to their refusal to acquiesce with her repeated takedown requests by taking them to court for invasion of privacy.
I’m tired of not being taken seriously by my parents.
The girl’s father has said that they’re his photos, so it’s his right to publish them.
In the end this is our child, and for my wife and me, it’s a nice family album that’s been well received by our Facebook friends.
Michael Rami, who’s said to be the woman’s lawyer, was quoted by Austrian media as saying that he believes she has a good chance of winning in court.
Her parents could lose the case if it can be proved that the images violated her rights to a private life, Rami said.
It’s the first case of its kind in Austria.
