FTC Bans Revenge Porn Website Operator

The Federal Trade Commission banned the operator of a revenge porn website from posting nude photos or videos of women without their consent. Under the settlement with the FTC, Craig Brittain will also have to destroy all the images and other personal information related to the women. “This behavior is not only illegal but reprehensible,” said Jessica Rich, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Consumer Protection. The FTC complaint against Brittain alleges that in addition to soliciting and posting these images, he also ran a fake content-removal service and deceptively advertised it to women under the name “Takedown Hammer” or “Takedown Lawyer.”
