According to Austrian daily The Local, an 18 year-old from the town of Carinthia is suing her parents for posting embarassing photos of her on Facebook when she was younger.

Her lawyer Michael Rami claims that such about 500 of such photos have been shared for the past 7 years to her parent’s 700-odd friends on Facebook.

These photos show the teen doing everything from getting her nappy changed to potty training in her earlier days.

The teen says she her requests to take the photos down have gone in vains as her dad argues that since he took the photos, he owns them and has the right to use them publicly.

“They knew no shame and no limit – and didn’t care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot – every stage was photographed and then made public.”

As such, she has no choice but to take the matter to court. Her lawyer is seeking both compensation for his client and a court order for the pictures to be taken down.

The case is scheduled for November.
