A Takedown Order?
Takedown Content Shared Without Your Consent
A takedown order is when the owner of digital content orders a website or hosting service to remove their content.
A takedown order is when the owner of digital content orders a website or hosting service to remove their content. Takedown orders are not easy to obtain, as it can be challenging to prove who actually owns what in a digital space. But the attorneys at We Rise Legal are determined to help you retake control of your content, especially because many of the people seeking takedown orders are victims of the horrendous practice of revenge porn.
What is Revenge Porn?
Revenge porn refers to the sharing someone’s sexually explicit photos and images without their permission. Sadly, this is a practice that is often carried out to punish the subject of the material, and the practice is abusive. It does not matter if the content was shared by someone you are in a relationship with someone you have recently ended a relationship with, or someone you have never been intimate with…it is illegal and immoral for them to share your images. It also does not matter if you are aware of the material or not. Neither privately shared photos nor candid photos belong on the Internet, and we can help you to take them down.
In the State of California, revenge porn is considered disorderly conduct, which is a misdemeanor that can be punished by jail time or a fine. We can and have pursued legal action against your perpetrator, but the first step will always be obtaining a takedown order that gets your intimate content off of the Internet. The victims of revenge porn often feel embarrassed and humiliated. The first step in healing is reclaiming your control of your body, your images, and your emotions – and we can help you do just that.
We are living in a brave new world of social media and digital sharing, and with that comes new ways for people to harass and abuse each other. Let us help you to take back your power by starting with a takedown.
