"Sorry, If you put it on the Internet and think you can maintain your "ownership" of anything, you are seriously naive."
If you put anything you own (for this example a picture) on the internet, you still own it and all copyrights to it. Anyone using that picture without your consent (explicit or otherwise) is guilty of theft. Whether or not you can convict them is moot. It's like me parking my really nice car in the ghetto. I can`t expect it to be there when I get back. But, it`s still mine.

I don't care if facebook said that they retain the rights to anything you put on the site. If you are an graphic or music artist, what you put on the site is still your intellectual property. There is no way that facebook can take claim over something like that without you EXPLICITLY signing those rights over, which you definitely don`t do by signing that terms of service contract.
