If posting pictures (that you own) of people without their explicit permission became a crime, it would instantly kill Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, and any other photo sharing site.

You only own the photo but not the rights of that person's likeness, in many circumstances (or circumcisions).

Anyway, this really needs to become classified as a crime.

I'm pretty sure it is already a crime. IIRC, if the photo is not in a public place or there is reasonable expectation of privacy, you must have signed consent to exhibit nude photos of someone.

Say good-bye to news magazines as well.

Excellent. Proceed with this new law immediately!

The one thing that's surprising in all this is that these women are suing the website (which is fine), but apparently NONE of them are suing the assholes who submitted those pictures in the first place?

Unless you're a total skank who goes through five boyfriends (girlfriends) a month and all of them have pics of you naked, it isn't that hard to figure out who submitted them?

Anyway, this really needs to become classified as a crime.

meh.

That about sums up your argument, yes
Something tells me you didn't even understand what I was saying. I can try to explain it again? But, you tell me what you thought I said. If you can.

OK, now you're totally uninformed, or trolling. I'm not sure which.

edit: Hell, we even talked about this shit last week.

That says Porn. Not nudity.

PS, you don't need to be employed. You don't need a job. You can work for yourself... HALLO.


Christ. Welcome to the twit filter.

Glad we agree

Yes it can, legally. You are being willfully obtuse about this or are very poorly read on the topic. There are all sorts of moral clause contracts and other terms of employment that can even include things that happened years before your employment.

Even if you lived in a place with different labour laws that could get around it, it could cause irreparable damage to your career in the long term as there is more to being employable than your legal rights.

See, the difference is we're talking about this hurting your life, you're talking about it being the internet.

Newsflash: it's 2012. There is no clear, distinct line between "internet" and "life." If you're a teacher and naked pictures of you are found on the internet by your students guess what: it damages your life. You can, you know, turn off the internet, but you can't turn off the internet for everyone that knows you.
Incorrect.

Damages your life how? because people have what? an opinion about you? *GASP* that's... nothing new. They already have an opinion, now it's about you being naked.

I'm saying it's not really an issue (being naked, having a photo of you out there naked) and it's not. If you want to let others opinion effect you, then go right ahead. You guys need to stop listening to the news - American news.

Just say no, that's not me, the lighting is all wrong. My tits aren't nearly that hairy!

But if that fails, what are you going to do! Oh, god the humanity. If only there was a way to ignore the internet.

*turns it off*

Oh god, the TV!

*turns it off*

Oh god, the radio!

*turns it off*

Now, no one but the voice inside your head can harm you, or was that the enemy all along? Stay tuned next week for another... LESSON in LIFE.

You're being really silly about this. I can be perfectly comfortable being naked but my boss might not be so comfortable with clients seeing that image of me and associating it with company representation.

People do this with other people they trust in the privacy of their home for the most part, they don't expect it ever to be disclosed to the public. You can blah blah about "who cares live free life lessons guyzzzz" but the reality is that no one deserves it because someone they broke up with is feeling petulant and a site that enables this sort of thing is going to be sued into oblivion.

Shrug it off and continue with life.

Posting the "name and who she is" is different though. That's more personal. You can deny a picture with no name if needed.
