But in the US, the right to privacy (what VERY little we have here) generally terminates with death.

I suspect few dead people have ever complained about their information being released.

OK, but data of this sort is rarely specific to only the account holder. A photo of a couple is still a photo of both of them, even if posted by just one of them. The survivor's right to privacy is still intact, but Facebook won't let them exercise that right. Arse holes.
