How to Report a Copyright Violation on Facebook.I'm not very often on Facebook, what most I do there, is post my arts and give some "like" to posts of my friends, but don't do it every day, sometimes I get many days without going there. Facebook isn't part of my life as Deviantart is.More Like This
But almost always I see copyright infringement from arts of my friends, and I will now explain with a step by step how you will remove YOUR work from other profiles. I explained that to some Deviantart members before, who had their art stolen, and all they did, works 100%!
You must follow this instruction correctly, ok?
1st: The best "report infringement" should be made by the original owner of the artwork.

Reporting a Violation or Infringement of Your Rights
Protect Your WorkFor many artists, art theft is a frustrating reality. No matter how we watermark, logo, or constrain the resolution of our work, there are instances where artwork will be reposted, ripped, or used for commercial gain without credit or compensation. For some, this can be almost flattering, to know that there are those that like your work enough to steal it. But, the fact still remains, that your work has been used without permission, and for no gain of your own.More Like This
I have been a photographer for four years now, and throughout that time I am always learning. Part of that education is around copyright, and how to protect my work. The collage above is a brief representation of some of the ways my photography has been stolen. Some were edited without permission, event advertisements, included in a calendar, manipulated to advertise jewelry, sold on canvas, for promoting a cosmetic brand, or even for music videos.

**Update: This seems to have disappeared! When I checked the link, a cute octopus illustration and foreign lettering show up. This one was particularly annoying as
the guy replaced my signature with his own and was bragging about my work as if it was his.
He even renamed it 'Decay and Despair'. I'm not sure how this was taken down, but I'm very glad that it was.

UpdatesI'm really sorry that I haven't answered anyone lately. I've been spending all of my time filing copyright complaint forms and emails. Pinterest and Tumblr have a convenient form which thankfully allows for including many site addresses for those who are using my work. They are also very quick to respond and much of my work has been pulled from their sites. They let me know by email. Google has a pretty good form but it took me some effort to find it. They state that unless they need more information from me, I won't hear from them again. I guess I'll have to check up whether or not it was dealt with. Face Book and Twitter make it kind of difficult , it seems every time I fill something out, they keep saying, things like 'are you sure' and 'don't you know this is serious'. I filled out a form for FB and they sent me an email requesting the same information again plus why I think it's a copyright infringement and how/why I have copyrights to the photo.

My photo is not a public domain image. According to the Berne Convention as soon as I press down the shutter on my camera I own the image that it creates. The copyright is automatic and instantly mine. I own the copyright of that photograph for a minimum of 25 years. The Berne Convention, is an international agreement governing copyright, which was first accepted in Berne, Switzerland, in 1886. The United States became a member of the Berne Convention on March 1, 1989. My work is signed and has a copyright symbol. I am the owner of that photo and and no one has the right to use it without my permission.
While this is great, I've been checking into actually registering my work with a
