Spanish Supreme Court recognizes the right to revoke consent for the use of personal image at any time On 24 April 2016, the Spanish Supreme Court handed down a ruling which recognized the statutory right to revoke (at any time) consent granted by means of an agreement for the use of personal image. The plaintiff entered into an agreement with the defendant to promote her image, for which purpose she was the object of a photographic report. After realizing that said photographs had been published in a digital magazine of erotic content, she decided to terminate the agreement. However, in spite of having terminated the agreement and having expressly requested the defendant to cease using the images, the photographs continued to be used, alleging that there was a clause in the agreement which permitted the use of the images even after the contractual relationship had ended. The Spanish Supreme Court considered that (i) the aforementioned clause which allowed the use of the image without temporal limits was abusive and (ii) the plaintiff's right to personal image had been violated for two reasons: on the one hand, the plaintiff revoked her consent within the term foreseen in the agreement to that extent and, on the other hand, even if the revocation had not taken place within such term, the law recognizes the right to revoke consent for the use of personal image at any time.
