Revenge pornography is a surprisingly serious problem. Not many adults can say they’ve never viewed a form of adult entertainment, being an extremely successful industry, but how many can say they’ve thought about the effects it has on the actors and actresses? That’s an entirely different story though. Social media, the advancement of phones, picture messaging apps for smart phones and the overwhelming access to the internet has made the growth of nonconsensual pornography skyrocket.
There are websites literally dedicated to posting pornography of individuals who are either unaware, or aware and unable to remove it themselves. These websites have communities which are fueled by upset, brokenhearted or grudging people who post private photos they’ve received through trust from their previous partners; perhaps even current relationships of which are eroding. Hackers also use these websites as a canvas to post pictures they’ve stolen from private virtual locations through illegal hacks; most commonly victim to these hacks are celebrities, such as the recent celebrity privacy hack titled “The Fappening”.
Because these giant sites are mostly run by the users, and commonly have lack of administration, it can be extremely difficult, if not impossible for a victim to remove his or her picture from the site without legal action. This makes for embarrassing and self-esteem changing emotions for the victim and it can truly ruin a period in their life. The hardest part to swallow is that a large majority of these victims are teens, and with the tight-knit community of high school, news can travel like wildfire, effectively creating a sensitive conversation topic for days to come.
Legally, there can be extreme penalties for people who take part in the release of this content, however; it can be difficult to track the sources due to computer defenses that deny authorities to backtrack to them. One of the most common types of defenses is called a VPN, or Virtual Private Network, which can make your virtual fingerprint appear in a different location altogether.
As previously stated, without proper support from someone with knowledge in this field, it can be extremely stressful, difficult, or near impossible to remove the embarrassing blackmail from these websites. Dolman Law Group not only aims to remove any content that has been posted without consent, but to also bring these websites to justice for harboring criminal acts and doing nothing about it.
