    Mother Finds Her Baby Son Up for Adoption on Craigslist

    Since the primary case seems to revolve around false advertising and only the baby's likeness being used, should the ad have been removed? People use stock photos for advertising all the time....

    A Massachusetts mother was horrified when she found her 7-month-old child’s photo on popular promotions site, Craigslist, advertising his own adoption.

    MyFOXBoston reports that a stranger alerted Jenni Brennan of Abington, Mass. to the photo, which involved her 7-month-old son, Jake, in an online adoption scam. The ad read: “A CUTE BABY BOY FOR ADOPTION HE IS VERY HEALTHY AND READY FOR ADOPTION FOR MORE YOU COME BACK TO US.”

    Brennan responded to the ad, receiving an email describing her son as Canadian but currently living in an African orphanage.

    She said the photo was from her family’s blog.

    I'm shocked. Well, people use stock photos in which a model release is signed and saved. But in this case there was neither a model release nor permission from his or her parents to use that photo - so yes, it would be illegal.

    This is the sort of reason why I do not like all of the internet. It has just gotten to the point where it is like you can not get any privacy on there nowadays.
