Intimate photographs, in this day and age of digital cameras there are more and more people take more and more photographs of themselves wearing less and less. For some people it's not a big deal to take private intimate photographs. It's when these photographs get shared on the world wide web that the problems arise.

There have been numerous cases reported where couples in a relationship take these kinds of photos and then when the relationship goes sour these pictures get shared on public sites. According to Kenner Representative Julie Stokes, that's where the harm comes in.

After the relationship's over the picture gets forwarded and people have attempted suicide based on how these pictures get used against them and the exploitive nature that they're used.

Under the law that was proposed by Stokes and now signed by Jindal, sharing these kinds of pictures without consent could lead to some serious consequences. Under the law a fine up to 10-thousand dollars could be levied and there is a possibility of up to two years in jail.

Speaking to the Louisiana Radio Network Stokes went on to say that this law needed to have some teeth because the problem is becoming more and more prevalent in our society. Just because you have intimate photos of someone does not mean you own the rights to them. Just because you're mad at someone does not give you the right to ruin their lives.

It's not your right to cause someone, sometimes, irreparable emotional harm just because you're mad at them, or want to get back at them, or want to get back at them, or want to cyber-bully them.  I just think we have to draw the line somewhere.
