Not long ago the social network Facebook has lost a lawsuit made by a professor from Paris whose Facebook account has been suspended after posting a famous painting "L'Origine du Monde" - a famous painting of the nineteenth century, of Gustave Courbet, which illustrates the intimate parts of a naked woman.
The cause of this incident was because the social network could not distinguish between art and pornography.
The painting in question, made by Gustave Courbet in 1866, is exposed at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
The teacher will receive damages amounting to 20,000 euros, according to the daily Le Figaro , sourced by Mediafax.
