Nonconsenual Pornography – Revenge Porn – What is it?

Photos, video, and other media depictions of you that were taken or created without your knowledge or expressed permission to share are examples of non-consensual pornography. This type of image sharing is oftentimes referred to as revenge porn due to the retaliatory nature of the action of sharing such an image with others without someone knowing. Threatening to post something of this nature or to use blackmail or extortion can also fall under the same umbrella issue.

Whether a nude picture has been taken without your consent, or an image that you shared of yourself with someone you trusted is shared further than you intended, you have options and steps that you can take.

In California, taking explicit pictures without someone’s consent, or sharing explicit photographs without someone’s consent are both crimes.  In addition to being crimes, you can sue the wrongdoer in court to get compensation for the damages the person has caused you.

If you are the victim of revenge porn, call the attorneys at Broderick & Saleen right away to discuss your situation, and they will let you know your best options for moving forward.

Revenge Porn Laws - What Do They Cover?

Revenge Porn is seen as a crime of psychological abuse. It is described by academics as image based sexual abuse. Uploading sexually explicit material of a subject is done to humiliate or intimidate the subject. Other times, it is for profit, or could be images that provide a way to identify the subject of the material, by including their name, address, workplace or profiles on social media. In cases of a hostile environment at a workplace, a colleague or coworker may use this type of attack to get the subject fired or removed from their position at their job. Being the subject of revenge pornography can make it harder for the subject to acquire future employment. California now has anti-cyberharassment laws that can be applicable to cases of revenge porn and non-consensual pornography.
