Google, Jennifer Lawrence, and Life: onexfeatherxleft: marieluc76: gjmueller: upworthy: If your nude photos are posted online without your permission, Microsoft and Google want to know. For years, most victims of revenge porn 鈥 people who have had their nude photos shared online without permission 鈥 basically couldn鈥檛 do anything about it. According to聽one study, over 50% of all adults engage in sexting, and 70% admit to having received a nude photo online or over the phone. And yet, despite the fact that we all (or at least more than half of us) do it, there鈥檚 still this weird, persistent, harmful notion that if your naked pictures get leaked or shared maliciously by an ex online, it鈥檚 your fault for taking them in the first place. It鈥檚 completely backward, but sadly, the law seems to at least kind of agree. As of September 2014, New Republic found, putting someone else鈥檚 illicit photos online without their consent was illegal in just 16 states, though laws have been proposed in more states. Not only is it typically impossible to prosecute the perpetrator, they note, it鈥檚 impossible to legally compel websites to take the images taken down most of the time. But thankfully, Microsoft and Google 鈥 which operate two of the biggest search engines on the web 鈥 don鈥檛 think it鈥檚 your fault. And they鈥檙e finally saying 鈥淓nough is enough.鈥 Here鈥檚 how to report a non-consensual image posting on Bing. And here鈥檚 how to do it on Google. Boost! Here鈥檚 another way to fight back from your friendly neighborhood law student! If you took these pictures yourself, you owe the copyrights to these pictures so in addition to taking down the pictures you can smack them with a lawsuit not only for intentional infliction of emotional distress BUT ALSO copyright infringement so he has to pay you anywhere from $750-$10,000 per photo posted, x5 damages if there鈥檚 willfulness/malice (which there always is). Bleed those creeps dry.
