Not exactly the most functional family, I’d guess:

A German court made a woman pay her daughter €600 in damages after she put photos of her daughter in a bikini on the internet – complete with mocking comments underneath, a radio station reported on Wednesday.

The woman, who lived in Baden-Württemberg, was charged with copyright violation after she published unflattering pictures of her bikini-clad daughter on Facebook, regional broadcaster Südwestrundfunk (SWR) said.

Read more about the case on The Local (De).

Interesting that the suit was for copyright violation. I wonder if there were any privacy grounds to the complaint, too. If any German-speaking reader sees additional details on this case, perhaps you could share them in the Comments section.
