Welcome to Bildombudsmannen

Staffan Teste, Bildombudsmannen AB, works as Picture ombudsman for Nordic countries. If you have problem to receive money from a buyer we can help you. We are involved in infringements of pictures owned by small copyright owners to big rights holders and picture agencies. As long as you own the copyright we will help you.
     Since 1977 we have helped several hundred copyright owners to receive money from a few thousand crowns to half a million. During late 90-ties we helped 18 picture agencies to receive about one million crowns from a collecting society. We help copyright owners and picture buyers to write fair contracts. We have also helped models to receive what they should and helped people, who have been unlawfully used in advertising.
     Teste is also working for BLF the Swedish organisation for photo companies and agencies in Sweden, second largest organisation of that kind in Europe and a member of Cepic.
   Staffan Teste has experience in International law in his position as a former member of the board of the European Picture agency organisation Cepic. He has represent Cepic in the World Intellectual Organisation, WIPO and in EU-hearings.
     Companies outside Sweden use Bildombudsmannen to help them with their problems in the picture world. Bildombudsmannen represent members of Picscout   on Nordic countries. Staffan Teste is member of an International law discussion group in Cepic. Every year lawyers from that group meet at Cepic conference in Europe.
     Send an email to and tell us your problems. We work on a commission base after a small amount of introduction money. If it turned out to be impossible to solve your case it does not cost you anything more.

Förbud att fotografera/publicera personer på Facebook


Med tanke på den nya lagstiftningen om förbud att fotografera personer i offentliga rum, ex vis inom genren "streetphoto" och publicera på Facebookgrupper/Facebooksidor... så undrar jag om lagen gäller även på Facebook?
(Jag menar då inte ev foton i kränkande situationer som ex vis "hämndporr" i PM och liknande... )

Om man fotar ute på gator och torg är det ju många gånger oundvikligt att få med människor på bild ...
Så jag undrar om det finns något nytt ytterligare stärkt skydd mot att fotografera människor i närbild eller på avstånd i offentliga miljöer?
