I am appalled.
Good question!This stinks. But it has me thinking and putting pieces together. Karen has the money to chase this one down - and hasn't it already happened in / gone to court, these kinds of cases, and the perpetrators of this kind of shit, get taken down. And lawsuits are expensive. Is jail time included? I hope Karen pursues it - into the ground . . .
By people who post it I guess..
It is fair game - but by whom? THAT is the question.
If these are embarrassing photos from years ago, it is a violation of privacy, I think. Whoever had the photos can be held responsible, as can the distributor. Sort of like the release of the sex videos of so many celebs. Years back nothing could be done, except to pay off the person and/or distributor, but once on internet, it never goes away. So celebs used those to get famous. Worked for them. This is different. This was malicious. Karen isn't 'famous' like that. This is malicious - and laws have changed. I think now someone can be held responsible and sued. But as you said, it would be embarrassing, for her. But hell, she is one tough cookie. And I'll bet she was one good-looking youth - yep . . .By people who post it I guess..
But what is to be achieve in being so nasty???
How is those pictures contribute to expose any present wrongdoings of a person????
* regarding defamation I know a little of it since I am working on a civil suit of mine. I thought I have to prove the facts are wrong but I was told by the lawyer is not the case. I only have to prove the defamation took place. So wether true or not , it's the intent that matters.
I don't know if the same in USA though, but Karen being a public figure, may change the situation as one can use a defense of " fair criticism" as the guy does on EDMB for weeks.
Criticize public figure critics.
Here is a link for USA
Exactly!Well, this is 10 worse than having personal info exposed.
