What Is Revenge Porn?

Our Revenge Porn Lawyers help individuals who have fallen victim to a scorned ex-lover, romantic partner, spouse, or friend.  These people often disseminate the images or videos as a way to exact revenge after a relationship has spoiled.

Revenge Porn is the publication and distribution of sexually explicit materials, usually photographs or videos, involving an individual who has not consented to the publication and distribution of their photographs and videos.

Unfortunately, today, technology makes it extremely simple to take an explicit photograph or video and upload it to the internet for the world to see. Whether it be because Revenge Porn is a relatively new trend or because of widespread misconception and victim-shaming, the justice system has struggled to find ways to deal with this crippling new trend.

Revenge Porn is a pervasive and alarming trend that exists in a legal grey area. It is difficult to get websites to take down photographs and videos, difficult to prosecute sites displaying Revenge Porn content and, to make matters worse, many individuals who share this content do so anonymously. Some, but not all states, have laws that protect victims, but many of these laws are under-inclusive or fail to adequately address the root of the problem. As a result, Revenge Porn Lawyers must work within existing avenues to help protect their clients’ rights.

Revenge Porn Victims

Who are revenge porn victims?

Victims of Revenge Porn are overwhelmingly female. As such, victims are exposed to a unique set of consequences that stem from dissemination of sexually explicit content. Victims of Revenge Porn can lose their jobs, receive unwanted and unsolicited phone calls and e-mails seeking sexual favors, and are subjects to further harassment both on and offline. The results for Revenge Porn Victims are truly devastating: evoking fear, anxiety, severe emotional distress, and even guilt. Many victims think they know who is behind the dissemination, however, that is not always the case.  Videos and photographs are easily transferable, and it may be necessary to track down the individual who disseminated the content.
