I was on a bike ride event where more than 100 bikers participated. some of the riders had camera and clicked the photos of this social event. the event was of a authorize dealer(registered) of bike. the photographs were taken by the group members of the club (which might not be registered). The group members posted the photos on their individual Facebook account and then shared it on the Club Group on Facebook making the photos publicly available to see and download the same. I downloaded the 117 photos out of 130 photos and posted on my account with the view setting public. the person who shared the photograph on club group on facebook orders to delete the photos on my personal facebook account and says its the case of COPYRIGHT. can this be called a case of copyright as i have posted photograph on my facebook account with intention to reporting event with non-commercial and with no intention to harm the copyright of the original rider member photographer.
question 01) If non-copyrighted photos shared on public group / public forum can be downloaded and uploaded without mentioning the name of original photographer.
question 02) can this be a case of copyright
question 03) do i have to delete the photos on my facebook account.
question 04) in matter of case file, what is the remedy / exception available to me?
