When Kevin Bollaert was convicted for running a Revenge Porn site (no … he wasn’t!) in early February, KUSI News San Diego called me for an interview. My info was sketchy – reports that he was convicted for extortion and identity theft, usually accompanied by wrong statements (again) that Bollaert was busted for running a revenge porn site. Of course, the site itself would be immune from liability for user-generated content per the CDA §230. So it must have been the part where the poor victims whose private photos ended up on the site could get them removed for a modest fee; and the part where Bollaert solicited private information from the perps regarding the victims.
Anyway … the news truck came down and I yakked at them for 20 minutes or so. They kept the “Just be careful,” advice. I supposed it plays better on TV than where I advised, “Be alert; be vigilant; be circumspect; be judicious.” (That was a little experiment for my own personal edification.)
I’ll embed the video at some point. Meanwhile, > Here’s a Link
