Re: nude picture
Interesting question and one that will arise more as number of posts
of wives and exgirlfriends mounts to the millions.
I assume the subject was over 18 so no questions about picture of minor.
There is NC statutory prohibition against dissiminating pictures of minors.
If the picture is really "obscene" and is posted to a web site there is
a possibility that either federal or State authorities could issue
a summons or warrant for dissiminating pornography.
The subject in the picture could attempt to proceed civilly
from some basis, but the threat of federal criminal charges would be enough to keep most
folks from putting nekkid wives on the web.
Good luck and post only her pretty face and smile on the web. DG
