    I took some pictures from ImageFap.com to use for my "revenge on cheating girlfriend" site.Currently i'm receiving 10k+/uv per day on my site.

    A few days ago i saw my site link on a forum and someone recognized the girl in the pics and he said that he's going to tell her.She is from US and i'm not.

    Am i in trouble?What can she do?Can she sue me or smth?

    Reply only if you know the law on this matter.Please don't tell me to change the pics coz i don't want to loose all this traffic.

    EDIT: ooh and the pics are not hosted on my site,the are linked(imageshack)

    I feel like this exact thread has been posted before, but if you can find out where in the US she is from, you could block that region from viewing your site.

    Assuming that person on the forum was telling the truth (which this is the internet so....) civil litigation could be brought against you. I know you said you don't want to take the pics down, but that is the best way to safeguard yourself. You could also leave them up there and if her or her lawyers come calling tell them you bought the pics off of someone you thought they belonged to (i.e. was her) and that you will remove them immediately.

    your not in the US but is your hosting?

    the easiest was is to offer her 10% of what you make and make her give you some new pics to prove its her.

    If you're hot linking (from ImageShack) then it depends who hosted them on ImageShack. If you did then you're still in the poo, if it was someone else, you're in the clear.

    If you're obviously in breach of someone else's copyright then continuing to keep them showing would be deemed a wanton breach of copyright and invoke even heavier penalties.

    Bottom line - get them down quick!

    Can't see how she can sue you. She's too far. Wait till she contacts you and see what happens. If she asks for her picture to be removed, then you probably should.

    You worry too much. Any lawsuit will cost USD50,000-100,000 to proceed. The lawyer will make sure he can collect from you before suing you. If he cannot, he won't bother at all. So sweet dream and make your money.
    You are far away from US , right???
    The worst case scenerio is the lawyer call your host. But, this happens all the time and I doubt your host will care about it.

    What makes you think a lawsuit is that expensive ?
    a) Many people are law-insured, the lawsuit is for free
    b) it costs a few hundred bucks to bring this up to court (including the court costs and pre-court work)
    And in case you steal the pictures you'll pay the full amount anyway.

    The idea about blocking that specific US region was not bad, another option is to cloak your site (bring other pictures for that US region).
    But most probably hard to find that out before it is too late.


    Also you don't want a warrant in the US against yourself, so even if your country is protecting you .. in worst case you can not leave it anymore :)

    The lawyer can find out and do A LOT to you. The question is : Is it worth his time to do it. It cost a lot of money to launch a law suit. USD50,000-100,000. If the lawyer WON the case, how can he collect form you ? If the lawyer THINKS he has no way to cover his USD50,000-100,000, he won't bother. The lawyer has better things to do, he has to feed his family too. Everything comes down to money. IS IT WORTH TO DO IT !!!!!!! If no, no one will do it at all. Pure and simple. Unless you do some really NASTY, someone will get you then. So sweet dream

    The lawsuit ITSELF does not cost that much but the lawyer WANTS to make that much. the lawyer will ask the GIRL for that much. If the GIRL does not have money, then the lawyer will suggest splitting the awards. The split will be TOTAL minus legal cost say $50,000. Then the lawyer will take 30% of the rest. The actual outlay for the lawyer might be a few hundreds but the lawyer is not going to charge the GIRL ONLY a few hundreds..

    Depends on the country.
    In EU you can push a lawsuit through two court instances for a few hundred bucks.
    It usually depends on the amount of money you sue for.
    50k-100k would mean the girl wants millions from you.

    And don't forget that posting the naked picture of a random girl can also lead to criminal charges. All it takes is going to police and giving them information about it.

    -----

    In the end I just wanted to say this:

    Do not enter any risk for a few thousand non-converting visitors.
    It's not worth any trouble.

    Almost 95% of the porn available on the web is under license by one company. Do yourself a favor and if you have an idea like this, get a couple of galleries and just pay the $10 for it.

    Home Page:
    Tell her she can go fuck herself if she contacts you. Shoot her a e-mail saying

    Dear whore:

    The internets iz fair game now tits or gfto.

    Thank you,
    Guy thats whoring you out

    But seriously there isn't much she can do as far as sueing you. She could possibly contact your hosting and get your site removed but thats about it.

    That's what a revenge site is about..
    Natural looking naked and soft to hardcore pictures of a random girl.

    If I were the girl I'd sue, no matter if I risk a few thousands. I'd want my own revenge for spreading my pictures to ten thousands of people against my will.
    You'd ignore it ? ;)

    Btw I like the idea of selling the site best.
    That might be a good solution if a good buyer can be found.

    Justone is right. you got your revenge and you should feel a lot better now. sell the site and let somebody worry about it. List it for a buck on Ebay.
