Victims Push Laws to End Online Revenge Posts

From an article in The New York Times by Erica Goode:

“And some experts, like Eric Goldman, a law professor at Santa Clara University, have said that any state law would be vulnerable to First Amendment challenges. 

But Eugene Volokh, a First Amendment scholar at the University of California, Los Angeles, said he saw no constitutional obstacle to a law written narrowly to address naked or sexual images distributed without permission. 

“I think that’s a kind of invasion of privacy that the courts would say can be prohibited,” he said. 

An example of what such a law might look like has been drafted by a law professor at the University of Miami, Mary Anne Franks, and posted on the website endrevengeporn.org, founded by Jacobs.”
