Facebook -- Nude Photos -- Defamation?

This is not an only in Indonesia story as it the 'art' of sexting and sending naughty pictures of oneself happens pretty regularly so it seems. It has been reported that Tiger Woods asked at least one of his mistresses to send him a naughty photo or two. I guess he has more than one mobile phone, otherwise the odds of getting caught out by the wife seem a little on the 'not worth it side'.

Anyways, it has been reported that a 26-year-old civil servant encouraged his 17-year-old girlfriend to send a naughty picture of herself to him. She obliged. The nude photo then found itself uploaded onto a Facebook page. Apparently, the report was that he defamed her. I am not sure that this is the right 'complaint' to be lodging with the police. It would seem that the new pornography law and the information and electronic transactions law would be a little more appropriate. Considering the age of the 'victim' in this case there could be a criminal code angle to explore as well, perhaps along with some child protection issues.

Nevertheless, the nude photo is only part of the problem. It seems that the pair had a sexual relationship and decided that they needed to take some mobile phone footage of their encounters. The boyfriend has been using this footage as a means of keeping the girl his girlfriend by telling her that if she leaves him then he will show the footage to her parents.

Maybe the moral of the story is: do not voluntarily or knowingly allow yourself to be filmed in compromising positions and don't be tempted to send naked photos of yourself to supposed trusted confidantes. Sometimes things just do not work out.

@ Viagra Online...

Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. My apologies for such a delayed response.

I reckon there were probably other reasons that precipitated Elin finding out about Mr. Woods' extra-curricular activities.

Ho hum...

Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. All comments are appreciated.

I think I have also posted on the dangers of Facebook and publishing photos of ones self in a public social networking forum where you can lose control over the image.

I appreciate that Facebook is popular, but that is not necessarily justification for posting nude pictures of yourself there.

Nevertheless, this post is really about the posting of naked pictures of you by others.

I am not sure that it is defamation when this happens. Although, I think if I tried I might be able to make some arguments for a defamation case. Yet, I am not sure that this is necessarily the best way to go about it.

Well, I don't really suppose this is likely to have effect.
