    Would you do it?

    I wonder what the legality of the situation is, who actually owns the pics?

    In Canada I know that for telephone convos it's fair game to record and replay.

    Nice way for you to get links so you can see the rest of the shots.

    Posting such pictures on the internet for the world to see would pretty much prove she was right to leave, IMO. And posting such pictures if one were the one who left... would establish that person as a complete ass.

    Regardless of the legality, it's a petty thing to do. And it cannot be undone.

    Doesn't it depend on what actually precipitated between them? but point taken, any such photos are undoubtedly meant to be for personal use.

    I think it's difficult to say one way or another. Also, I'm not a legal expert but it would be interesting to see an article about people being sued over similar situations. How exactly does one determine who's property the pictures are?

    Regardless of what happened between them, he's an ass for doing what he did. Wait until karma comes calling.

    I completely agree. I don't think there are any grounds for posting naked photos of an ex online, I mean why?

    posting that type of pic without consent is classless

    And cruel. Any lawyers? Surely there's got to be some kind of action that can be taken against the guy.

    If she sees them, and there is nothing saying that you could use them, she can sue, and will most likely win.

    Personally, Get over it. There is nothing more tacky and juvenile.

    I love it when a breakup occurs and one of the two has to sit around and figure out ways to get back at the other.

    CRAZYBUBBA, if you actually have to ask about the legality of doing something that quite possibly may lose the moral battle before losing a courtroom battle then perhaps you should dig ... I mean put yourself in check and realize that bad things could happen to you if you continue down this path.

    I would hope that if when you do this (because you will no matter what people say here) your next girlfriend is well informed of your behavior should she decide to leave you or should you decide to leave her.

    It could open you to legal ramifications. If she's under the age of consent, you'd be guilty of possessing and distributing child porn. Many cases of dudes doing and being busted. No jail time or juvy hall but you go on probation and have to register as a sex offender. Is it worth that?

    As an adult, you could still be charged with a number of laws depending on your location.

    Even without any of those hassles, you'd have to be a major d ick with a small penis to do something like that and it would only confirm that you ex was right to drop your sorry ass.

    Oh, and don't forget the one where she gets some dudes and they beat the hell out of you.

    Really scummy to even consider it much less ask others' opinions.

    For the record. I have no intent of doing anything of this sort. Seeing these things just made me think about it and the fact that I know very little about what happens afterwards.

    Plus, of course, it would just scream "I used to have this, but I couldn't hold onto it, and I guess it's obvious why."

    It's not like the days of Polaroids. Any pictures you have taken of you can be used in such a manner so everyone should be a bit more discerning. The digital age has loosened peoples inhibitions and many an otherwise decent person has been bitten by their minor indiscretions. Laws are vague for most instances so aspiring models beware. People are people - trust no one.......

    I did a photo shoot of a girlfriend. Professional, non-nude, really just a bunch or portraits.

    After we broke up I sold a bunch of pictures to a stock imaging company. A few of which were of her. Another company bought some of the stock images from this company to use in their advertisements. The ex just happen to see the ad. She sued, and got $2,500. Not all THAT much, but still about $2,000 more then I got from selling the images.

    There was no contract set up between us. I was stupid and totally ape sh*t for her, which was my demise.

    People can sue for anything, and in a case like this, they can win.
    At least my ex was only able to sue for compensation.

    Your looking at slander, anguish, and grief.

    Shotgun!

    In all seriousness, I could never do something like that to an ex, regardless of the circumstances of how the relationship broke up, a real man wouldn't be so petty...

    Doesn't matter what she did to you. Do that and you lose all the moral high ground. Asking if it's legal just shows you know it's wrong and you're trying to justify it to yourself.

    Better to just let it go. Not only will you feel better about yourself in a year, but you won't earn some seriously bad karma, and I don't mean some vague new-age spiritual badness. Your next girlfriend could find out what you did and feel the same way about it that we do in this thread. Worse, your ex-girlfriend's next boyfriend could be, say, a very angry and overprotective biker dude. Getting on with your life could save you a lot of future grief whether it's legal grief or not.

    It would probably depend on what she did and how she did it. If she was straightforward and honest about it, probably nothing. But consider the gold-digging ex from several years ago who decided it would be a good idea to cheat on me with my best friend at the time, was incredibly shady about it, and denied it once I found out. Her, I got fired from her job. Him, not a thing, because if a man steals your wife/girlfriend, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her. I did go see his parents and let them know what was going on - they own a bank and have considerable assets to protect. They disowned him and wrote him out of the will. Pictures on the web are amateurish.

    No.

    Even if she acted like a *****, why do you feel that it becomes OK to "one-up" her in a**holish-ness, and do something worse?

    If you're a better person, then you're a better person. That's it. If you were pretending to be a decent human being the entire time you were dating, then perhaps its within your character to do something stupid like that, legal or not.
