InternetReputation.com Announces Solution Fighting Revenge Porn A new solution for victims on online slander by revenge porn is now being offered by InternetReputation.com

DENVER, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Reputation management firm, InternetReputation.com has been watching the California legislation regarding revenge porn closely. The firm announced it has a new solution to helping people who have been a victim of revenge porn.

In the coming days, the California legislature will decide whether or not so-called "revenge porn" will be a legal activity within the borders of the state. If the law passes, jilted lovers could face big consequences if they choose to share nudie snaps taken in happier times. If the law fails, however, the activity remains protected, and the chatter in the blogosphere seems to suggest that this bill doesn't have a significant chance of passing.

Since revenge porn is so dismal and distressing, InternetReputation.com chose to respond by unveiling a new product line that can clean up a nasty situation in mere minutes, leaving a stellar reputation behind.

A Distasteful History

Some say that the revenge porn industry began with Hunter Moore and his now-defunct website "Is Anyone Up?" Here, ex-boyfriends with an axe to grind could post photographs of their former sweeties, and the technology allowed these boys to link those photos with a partner's social media profile.

The field exploded, and suddenly, there were hundreds of sites that allowed boyfriends and girlfriends to take their revenge. And the technology was sophisticated. A snap on a revenge porn site became just part of the overall media image of the person, and victims claimed that Google searches for their names brought back photographs of body parts that should never appear online.

Removing those photos was remarkably difficult, too, as many revenge porn site administrators seemed to have absolutely no pity for the victims of the crime. Moore, for example, told the New York Village Voice that people should just refrain from taking nude photos. That's the best way to stay safe, in his opinion, and those who didn't follow his rules seemed to merit only his disgust.

Complicated Laws

Since the administrators wouldn't remove the photos, some victims took to the courtroom, hiring lawyers in the hopes of finding relief. Unfortunately, they weren't able to make progress on this front. Many of the photographs in question were taken by the people who posted the snaps, meaning they're the private property of the poster, not the private property of the model. Removing them with the law is, therefore, a little sketchy.

Even snaps taken by a model that are posted by the recipient might not be covered by the laws, as these photos were taken by consenting adults doing things they wanted to do, so it isn't a form of blackmail.

The California law hopes to change that, but critics suggest that it won't help. It does damper free speech, which makes it the enemy of many lawmakers and the Supreme Court, and it also prosecutes porn shots taken only by the poster. Selfies get no protection here.

Better Answers

The InternetReputation.com solution is different. Victims can simply contact the company, outlining where their photos appear, and the tech team will quickly and efficiently wipe those photos from the sites in question. The team will also ensure that the Google "cache" is cleared, so the photos will not appear in thumbnail form on a search for the person's name. The service is up and running now, and it will stay in place, regardless of the outcome in California. Visit www.internetreputation.com to find out more.
