I. INTRODUCTION
[1]    The usurpation of personal pictures posted on social media
websites is not uncommon. Cheryl Smith was unknowingly made the face
of a dating website.1 A headshot of popular blogger Sara Pinnix was used
,,2
to promote an overseas Tarot card reader named Cristal.   And eighteen-
year-old Arielle Goldfinch's pictures were used on Tagged, a website
aimed at meeting people for sexual relationships.3
