Even though this is already a few weeks old, you might not have heard of it, and it’s quite relevant for a variety of reasons: “Three years ago, Lara Coton took a self-portrait and uploaded the image to deviantart and Flickr. Today, that image is being used as the front cover to a pornography DVD. The only problem is, Coton was 14 when the image was taken and she never gave permission for anyone to use her picture.” (source) You can find Lara’s Flickr page with her post here.
