In our Surviving Sextortion we offer a strategy to deal with this, however, since this is “Revenge Porn” there are other ways too.
What To Do if You’re the Target of Revenge Porn!
Did a criminalCriminal A criminal is any person who through a decision or act engages in a crime. This can be complicated, as many people break laws unknowingly, however, in our context, it is a person who makes a decision to engage in unlawful acts or to place themselves with others who do this. A criminal always has the ability to decide not to break the law, or if they initially engage in crime to stop doing it, but instead continues. or someone else share an intimate image of you without your permission? Or was a nude picture taken without your consent, or maybe an image you shared with someone was shared further than you’d intended?
If so, you’re not alone. Many people are affected by so-called revenge porn or non-consensual pornography. If that’s happened to you or someone you know, here’s information to help you decide what to do.
Is The Victim Under 18?
Is it illegal for someone to share my intimate images without my consent if I’m under the age of 18? Yes. Under the criminal code section 163, if you are under the age of 18, it’s considered child pornography.
Steps To Take If You’re the Target of Revenge Porn
Follow the steps in the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative’s Online Removal Guide. To get your image taken down, you’ll need to report it to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, Tumblr, Google, Yahoo, Bing, or any other platform it’s on. Before you do, read the guide to find out what to expect and how to document the post, as well as how to report it.
Find out if there’s a law about revenge porn where you live. There are laws against revenge porn in 46 states plus the District of Columbia, plus in many other countries. Check to see if there’s one where you live, and then decide whether you want to talk with local law enforcement. If you do, be sure to tell law enforcement if your situation might involve online financial fraudFraud In law, fraud is intentional deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain (money or other assets), or to deprive a victim of a legal right. Fraud can violate civil law (e.g., a fraud victim may sue the fraud perpetrator to avoid the fraud or recover monetary compensation) or criminal law (e.g., a fraud perpetrator may be prosecuted and imprisoned by governmental authorities), or it may cause no loss of money, property, or legal right but still be an element of another civil or criminal wrong. The purpose of fraud may be monetary gain or other benefits, for example by obtaining a passport, travel document, or driver's license, or mortgage fraud, where the perpetrator may attempt to qualify for a mortgage by way of false statements. A fraud can also be a hoax, which is a distinct concept that involves deliberate deception without the intention of gain or of materially damaging or depriving a victim., domestic violence, cyberstalking, or child pornography.
Consider talking with an attorney. There are laws that might be able to help you get your images taken down. One of the more powerful ones is copyright – if you own the photos, you can have them removed by claiming copyright infringement.
Know what you’re getting if you hire a takedown service. Unfortunately, there are services that take advantage of victims for a few – they may be real businesses – make sure you verify. Find out what they promise to do to take your image down, and whether you can do that yourself for free. Find out how much they’ll charge, and whether it’s a one-time fee or a recurring charge — and for how long you’ll need to pay.
Call this hotline. If you have experienced non-consensual pornography, need help or advice, and live in the U.S., call the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative’s crisis hotline: 844-878-CCRI (2274).
Can I be prosecuted for distributing someone’s private images even if they are over the age of 18? Yes. If you or someone you know has or is thinking about distributing someone’s private images without their consent, it’s considered a publication, etc., of an intimate image without consent under section 162 and you can be prosecuted for it. Source: http://laws-lois.justice.gc.ca/eng/acts/C-46/section-162.1.html
If you or someone you know has been affected by Online Violence or your private images were distributed or shared without your consent, understand that it is a crime!
Can I report someone pretending to be me or someone who creates fake accounts of me by using my private photos? Yes. Under the Criminal code of Canada section 403, it’s considered identity fraud, and those who commit this offense can be prosecuted. If you found fake accounts or know there are profiles pretending to be you, understand that it is a crime and you do have the option of reporting it.
How do I report it to the police? You can contact your local policeLocal Police The Local Police is your first responder in most countries. In most English-speaking countries and in Europe report to them first. In other countries look for your national cybercrime police units to report scams to. In the U.S., Canada, & Australia, you must report to the local police first. station, or the RCMPRCMP The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) // Gendarmerie royale du Canada (GRC)), colloquially known as the Mounties, and is the federal and national police service of Canada, providing law enforcement at the federal level.
