Facebook has promised to remove all fake accounts and fradulent advertisements that useThe Dr. Oz Show name or Dr. Oz's name without permission. Below is their statement: 

"Facebook respects the intellectual property rights of others and is committed to helping third parties, including Dr. Oz, protect their rights. Our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities prohibits users from posting content that violates another party's intellectual property rights. No content or ads may include content that infringes upon or violates the rights of any third party, and upon notice of such impermissible content, we stand ready to respond including by removing the content from Facebook.

That said, with over 955 million users posting copious amounts of content daily, it is not possible to proactively monitor uses of Dr. Oz's intellectual property. Furthermore, only a rights owner is in a position to identify when it believes its intellectual property rights are being violated with respect to any specific content on our site.

Accordingly, in order to facilitate rights owners' ability to report content that they believe infringes their rights, we provide easy-to-use web forms for reporting such content and maintain a robust infrastructure to review specific content that is reported to us, and if necessary, to remove content that violates our policies. Additionally, we have technical systems in place to identify and remove suspected fake accounts based on anomalous site activity. We are constantly iterating on these systems and developing new ones, to provide an even better experience for the people who use our service."


Statement of Rights and Responsibilities: We respect other people's rights, and expect you to do the same. You will not post content or take any action on Facebook that infringes or violates someone else's rights or otherwise violates the law.

Community Standards: Intellectual Property - Before sharing content on Facebook, please be sure you have the right to do so. We ask that you respect copyrights, trademarks, and other legal rights.

Advertising Guidelines: Ads may not include content that infringes upon or violates the rights of any third party, including copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, or other personal or proprietary rights.
