Revenge Porn & Privacy

 

When romance sours in the digital age, person’s private pain can turn into a public nightmare, if a vengeful ex-partner decides to post explicit videos or photographs online. Other times shadowy hackers are responsible for breaking into emails and cellphones and publishing the most intimate and private material.

Revenge porn is the abhorrent practice of posting compromising photographs and videos online without the subject’s consent. It has been estimated that 90% of revenge porn victims are women. The photographs and videos may have been taken in secret, stolen through hacking, or willingly shared with the perpetrator. Regardless of how the material was produced and published, the victim of revenge porn is never to blame.

If you or a loved one has been the target of revenge porn or other type of privacy intrusion, the law firm of Meyers Roman Friedberg & Lewis, LPA will act immediately to identify the source, remove the offensive material from the Internet and punish the individuals responsible. When appropriate, we will also file civil lawsuits for monetary damages and restraining orders against those who seized and distributed the material. And, if a crime has been committed, we will work with law enforcement to bring the guilty parties to justice.

At Meyers Roman Friedberg & Lewis, LPA, we view the non-consensual exposure of intimate material as a form of sexual violence. Our revenge porn and privacy experts will talk to you about your case with empathy and discretion. Then we’ll rapidly apply legal remedies that may include:

  • Removing the damaging online content
  • Establishing irrefutably the identity of the perpetrator
  • Suing those who distributed the offensive material for monetary damages and a restrining order
  • Suing those who distributed the offensive material for monetary damages and a restrining order
  • Contacting law enforcement to report any criminal activity
  • Creating an action plan to de-index the material from search engines and monitor and improve online reputation

Internet privacy extends far beyond revenge porn to include various forms of defamation, extortion or unauthorized filming with hidden cameras. In some cases, the victims are lured into compromising situations and then photographed or filmed against their will.

Time is of the essence in any case involving revenge porn or invasion of online privacy. It is critical to take action before the damaging material goes viral. We advise you not to delay in reaching out to an expert who will evaluate your case with discretion and sympathy.
