Removal of photos by Photobucket

Post  TONYELF on Wed Sep 21, 2011 12:50 pm

A quick topic re removal of photos by Photobucket. Here is a copy from the website

Unfortunately, we do not allow commercial use of Photobucket. Let us explain why:

Photobucket is a UGC (“user generated content”) site. This means that our registered members are responsible for the content that appears, not Photobucket. Members who post images represent and warrant that they are the owner of the copyright in the image posted. They grant a limited license to Photobucket to display the content at Photobucket.com, but retain the copyright in their image. Photobucket is thus not in a position to grant a license to use any of the works that appear on the site. That right remains with the copyright holder.

It would violate Photobucket’s privacy policy to pass along the contact information of the presumed copyright holder to you and Photobucket simply cannot act as a conduit between copyright holders and would-be licensees, since the volume of requests is so high.

In sum, Photobucket is not the owner of copyright in the work appearing on the site. Though it has certain licensed rights, it cannot grant a sublicense.

I am waiting reply from Photobucket as I made it known that all the photos inserted on this forum are personal and are with owners permission and not commercial in any way. Lets see what their reply says. (I won't hold my breath!)

Sooooooo helpful! what?
This was their reply.

Reponce via e-mail (Photobucket Support)
Please have the individuals contact us. We would need to review their specific accounts to determine.


Would it not be easier for the individuals to review their own accounts and agree they have the copyrite to their own photograghs?
