Dhillon Lee, a socialite and one of the “Rich Kids of Singapore,” recently took to Instagram Stories to publicly call out and slam Pictame.com for using his social media account content without any authorization.
Lee made several Instagram Story posts on Wednesday, July 4, where he called out the third-party Instagram posts viewer for publishing his photos on their platform and making a profit out of it without any approval from him. Pictame is a platform that generally sources trending Instagram posts but is not endorsed or certified by Instagram.
In another post, Lee showed a screenshot of a website analysis that he used to check out Pictame.com.
The platform allegedly earns about $4,296 daily from its operation, and the whole website is estimated worth $4,639,680. Pictame.com has only been around for 1 year and 1 month with a global ranking traffic of #1,904, according to CuteStat.
In another post, Lee demanded the website take down and remove his photos or else he would have to resort to taking legal action against them.
A lot of people also took to Pictame’s Facebook, Pictaram, to complain about their violation of privacy. These Instagram users left messages and comments asking the brand to take their photos off from their website. To no avail, Pictame has yet to reply to any of their messages – even to Lee’s threats of legal action.
