I am not sure about the scope of "Portrait Rights" under Dutch law. But the original avatar or character image would presumably be protected by copyright, in which case the commissioned work would be a derivative work, and so subject to approval by the holder of the original copyright. In any case, since this is a commission, the artist and client ...

When they refuse to give you control over the account because you can not (or they don't let you) prove that it's your account, then another option would be to report it as involuntary pornography of yourself. The penalties faced by platform owners for not removing such content on request are severe. So that will leave Twitter no option but to remove the ...

Somewhat analogous to Dale M's answer regarding California: if you live in the EU, the GDPR and its executing national data protection agencies are another, probably more fruitful, since this piece of legislation not only gives you a right to have that data of yours deleted, but also provides a third party ombudsman who should help you in case that the ...

I do not have the phone number, email, or anything else associated with the account. Well, neither do I - so it must be my account. Unfortunately, the fact that you appear in most or all of the pictures on that account does not prove that you own it. It could be the photographer's account. Do I have ANY options here Can you reactivate the email account ...

united-states This varies a great deal by jurisdiction. In the US, the rule cited in the answer by Dale M applies in many situations, that a person has no reasonable expectation of privacy in what s/he says or does in public, and anyone may publicize it, including by posting a video of it. However, in several states a "right of personality" applies....

In general, in common law jurisdictions, anyone and everyone has the right to record you unless you have a “reasonable expectation of privacy”. Where the exact line on that is situational but if you are shouting racist slurs, you don’t have it. The person who made the recording ...

new-south-wales It’s possible that this could amount to Offensive Conduct within the meaning of s4 of the Summary Offences Act 1988. A person must not conduct himself or herself in an offensive manner in or near, or within view or hearing from, a public place or a school.

Apple has not asserted that it is legally impossible in South Africa, they have simply said that they aren't doing it. The explanation may be that there is a credible legal concern, that is, they are not certain whether their system is consistent with South African law. The two relevant legal pieces that I know of are the Protection of Personal Information ...

I assume US as the jurisdiction, and don't purport to have checked all 50 states for laws deviating from federal law. The question is not clear as to what exactly is being done (something that has a reasonable relation to "consent"), so to be concrete, I assume the proposal is to take samples from waste water and analyze cells for the presence of a ...

Yes - if it contains confidential information Breach of confidence is a common law basis of action in (AFAIK), canada, australia, england-and-wales and united-states and probably all common law jurisdictions.
