I’d love to see a successful copyright case along these lines.

I wonder if this can be combined with adding a “terms of service” to your FB profile.

Corporations have perverted contract law to the point where their terms of service are binding even if you never read them, or are even aware of them.

Turnabout is fair play, right?

In OP’s case, his profile includes pictures scraped from a privately hosted blog, where adding such terms would be a simple matter.

Wouldn’t the new terms and conditions only apply to the pictures after the TnC have been added? So any already scraped picture could still be used.

CFAA enforcement is only for large corporations. Try to get an AUSA to enforce CFAA violations against a big company as an individual person with a website and they will probably laugh in your face.

Remember: there are two sets of laws in the US: ones that apply to you, and another set for large corporations that cooperate with the police and military.
