Citron & Franks on Criminalizing Revenge Porn

Danielle Keats Citron and Mary Anne Franks (University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law and University of Miami School of Law) have posted Criminalizing Revenge Porn (Wake Forest Law Review, Vol. 49, 2014, Forthcoming) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

The non-consensual publication of non-newsworthy sexually graphic images deserves criminal punishment. It produces grave emotional and dignitary harms, exacts steep financial costs, and increases the risks of physical assault., A narrowly and carefully crafted criminal statute can comport with the First Amendment. Criminalization of revenge porn is necessary to protect against devastating privacy invasions that chill self-expression and ruin lives.
