Anyone sharing Snapchat screenshots without the maker's consent could be sued under British copyright law, The UK's culture minister Ed Vaizey has confirmed.
Not only that, but those who share sexual images without consent could be sentenced to a maximum of 2 years in prison.
As Snapchat continues to grow in popularity (seriously it's taken over our lives a bit - wbu?) so too does the concern over image rights and privacy.
Vaizey was asked by MP Jim Shannon if he would: "take steps to prevent Snapchat images being made public without the consent of the image owner."
In a written response (we're kinda sad he didn't reply via Snapchat story, but hey, you can't have it all), Vaizey confirmed: "Under UK copyright law, it would be unlawful for a Snapchat user to copy an image and make it available to the public without the consent of the image owner.
"The image owner would be able to sue anyone who does this for copyright infringement."
He added that anyone sharing "private sexual photographs or films without the consent of an individual who appears in them and with intent to cause that individual distress" is doing do illegally, and if convicted, "could face a maximum sentence of two years in prison".
Eddie also advised Snapchat users to avoid sending messages which "they would not want to be saved or shared".
Ah - so basically every awful selfie we've ever snapped, then. Oops.
