Something I was thinking about[edit]

Hi, Green Giant. I had this thought yesterday. Consider John Doe clicks a photo and licenses it under CC BY-SA. Now, I can't share that photo on Facebook (just taking an example) because Facebook's terms and conditions include conditions which violate CC BY-SA. But now I want you to consider this. John Doe uploads the photo on Facebook, after having released it under CC BY-SA. Not only the photo is under a copyleft license; Facebook also has some of the rights to that image granted by the author (in T&C) -- as long as the author does not delete it. Since Facebook already has certain rights to that photo, now, shouldn't it be okay for me to reshare it on Facebook (as long as author does not delete it), because author had already granted some of the rights to Facebook?
