Revenge Porn Attorney - Los Angeles

Revenge Porn n. - A form of sexual assault that involves the distribution of nude/sexually-explicit photos and/or videos of an individual without their consent. Revenge porn, sometimes called "sextortion," cyber-rape or non-consensual pornography, is usually posted by a scorned ex-lover or friend, in order to seek revenge after a relationship has gone sour.

Revenge porn is a pervasive and alarming problem that exists and is a violation of law. ISPs are now more willing to take down the postings and government agencies are more willing prosecute, as more states are adding revenge porn statutes. It used to be that posting revenge porn photos was not technically illegal because the photos may be considered the photographer’s intellectual property (unless they are selfies), and many were initially taken with the victim’s consent. However, the recent laws on revenge porn has changed that way of thinking.

Operators of the revenge porn websites have claimed they are not responsible for user-submitted content due to the 1996 Communications Decency Act, which grants immunity under certain circumstances to websites for user-posted content.

California is the leader in enacting specific criminal laws against revenge porn. New Jersey has the stronger law. The criminal law in California only covers those who did not take photographs of themselves. The California civil law covers almost everyone.

Bills criminalizing revenge porn have recently been introduced in many other states including Wisconsin, New York and Maryland.
