A court in Italy has ordered a woman to remove her honeymoon photos from Facebook following a row with her husband in which he demanded the snaps be taken down as he did not give her permission to make them public.

According to The Local, the court in Naples agreed with her husband and could also order her to pay damages to her spouse.

The photos were taken during the couple's honeymoon around ten years ago and include the pair hugging and kissing.

Il Mattino reports that in the wife's defence, she said "the use of social networks is now so advanced that we can consider a Facebook wall to be not unlike a private photo album."

But the court found that posting of photos on the internet is "significantly worse" than any other form of publication as there is no guaranteed privacy by the user.

The woman had "certainly violated the right to privacy of her husband", and broken Article 10 of the civil code and a piece of legislation from 1941 which states that a person's photo cannot be displayed, reproduced or sold without their consent.
