What is revenge porn?

Video Transcription:

Revenge porn is the term that’s commonly used to describe the legal basis for sexual cyberharassment. That’s when a private sexual image, a photo that you may have sent to your ex-boyfriend or your ex-girlfriend or video you may have made together. That’s when another individual posts that video or that photo online without your knowledge and your consent. If that happens you have a cause of action under the Sexual Cyberharassment statute. You can report this incident to the police and you can also file for an injunction or restraining order to put a stop to that harassing post or to ask that it be removed. And you also have a separate civil cause of action. Under the statute, you’re entitled to recovery of your attorney fees. You’re also entitled to civil damages meaning monetary damages. Under the statute you can get $5,000 or your actual damages if you are a victim of sexual cyberharassment.
