If these are targeted online advertisements, I think there's also an issue with the informing of loved ones.
When it happens, I'd want to hear about my grandfather's death from my mom, not Facebook.
You don't need a persons consent to sell something with their name on it
I don’t see the issue here, personally. Might be a bit tasteless of the company, I guess, but harmless overall. And if someone asks for the info to be taken down, they comply.
Go ahead and put me on there when I’m dead. No one will buy any of it anyway, and my body will just be out in the dumpster behind Wendy’s.
I searched the site and got an error message saying that there was a certificate problem and that I could search a snapshot of the site.
Is this this an appropriate time to plug r/BuyItForTheAfterlife ?
This is retarded. The family members and friends are paying the website to make them a keepsake. Its not like they are selling a branded product.
It's no different than a picture website offering prints of your family photos to you. And for friends, it's not like thet require a license to print something for someone who is using the print under "fair use" doctrine.
Put away the damn pitchforks.
