My question involves defamation in the state of: Florida
A blog with personal nude pictures of women has become popular in my community lately. It 'exposes' women and a majority of the pictures posted were obtained from hacking their computers and emails and a few were submitted by ex-boyfriends. I know that these women were hacked because the blog owner posted a couple of the pictures on the blog to a forum a few months ago, where he admitted to being a hacker and told persons to submit the email addresses of girls they wanted to see. He/she was banned from the forum and hence he/she made the blog. Is there anything that can be done about this? I tried reporting the blog but Blogspot allows for nudity and I couldn't find an applicable section that fit this kind of thing. I would suspect that pictures gained through illegal activity (hacking) should carry some penalty. I feel bad for these women (I went to school with a couple) because their names and very graphic photos and videos are posted and we all know by now that those things tend to stay almost indefinitely online. There were even a few females that were under 18 but have since been removed. The blog owner(s) have even contacted a few women asking for money in order to have their pictures removed. The problem is that I'm not sure if all the persons involved are in the U.S. but I'm fairly certain that at least one is in Florida because of the something that was said that indirectly hinted to their location. Of course, that could've been intentional to throw people off. I just wanted to know how I could go about having it removed so I could also point other concerned persons in the same direction. I figure if the friends and families of the women all do something, it would halt these low life individuals in their tracks.
