“The Maryland House of Delegates has approved legislation that would make it a crime to disseminate “revenge porn” — using private, intimate photos or videos to harass or embarrass someone, often once a relationship ends.
The bill, which passed in a 130 to 0 vote Friday morning, sets penalties for those who cause “serious emotional distress to another by intentionally placing” an identifiable pornographic image, video or recording online.
