As another user had posted on reddit, this painting was already the subject of a lawsuit involving facebook.

I remember. In 2011, a Danish artist, Frode Steinicke, had his facebook page banned. Some month later the same happened to a French professor, who then decided to sue Facebook.

I found an update from March 2015 on this (still in French, sorry): Facebook had tried to argue that the French justice system shouldn't take the case because the user (the professor), by using their service, had accepted any litigations to be tried in the US state were Facebook is registered.

The article linked says that the French tribunal judged itself apt at judging this affair, creating an interesting précédent.
