Do I have any legal basis for demanding content posted by me on a UK based company website be removed?

Cheers,

Dunno. It probably depends on many circumstances: Do you have any ownership in the site, that you would have rights over its (otherwise legal) content? What were the terms of use that allowed the posting of content in the first place? Why are you wanting the content removed? Etc, etc.

What does your solicitor say?

Sounds like I need to spend money from the off on this one. I wondered if there was a standard de facto position or precedent in these matters, but I'm getting the impression each one is a start-form-square-one job.

 

I have no ownership interests in the site and no rights over and above those of any other contributor. Terms of Use are the normal largely unintelligible legalese.

 

I want to he content removed because the conduct of the site admin no longer provides the basis for my feeling comfortable or willing to leave my output on their site. This is probably a little ‘light’ in comparison to normal run-of-the-mill legal stuff you discuss on here, so I may have been wasting your time.

 

I don’t have a solicitor involved yet and given the rather negative likelihood, based on a quick trawl through posts here, of any success in these matters without significant cost up front, probably will not do so.

 

On the other hand, for those same reasons, should I ever feel the desire to rip off someone’s copyright it seems there’s very little to stop me and even if I am challenged, the likelihood of it going as far as a court is very low. A sad state of affairs really.

Then you probably granted perpetual license to post, present, maintain, etc, the content you posted. Yes, you own the copyright but, by using their bandwidth and service to post the content, you likely tacitly provided them with licensing privileges. Unless there's something in the Terms of Use that touches on this eventuality, you're probably stuck. Sorry.
