Revenge Porn Laws in Europe, U.S. And Beyond

Revenge porn is the unauthorized and malicious dissemination of intimate images or videos on the internet. The victim is usually naked or engaging in a sexual act. In most cases, the material will originally have been taken with the subject’s consent, often by a partner on a camera phone.

Indeed, the images may have been taken by the victim themselves and sent as a private message, but sometime later, perhaps after a relationship has ended, the images are published without the victim’s consent. The publisher is commonly motivated by a desire to punish, threaten or control the subject and the consequences can be catastrophic.
