TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A ban on posting and tagging nude photos and videos on the Internet - known as "revenge porn" - has unanimously cleared a House panel.
The House Judiciary committee advanced the bill (HB 787) on Tuesday. It aims to combat jilted lovers who embarrass each other online.
It would make a third-degree felony out of putting nudity on the Web and affixing identifying information to it.
The bill makes it a second-degree felony if the poster is 18 or older and the person in the photo is 16 or younger.
The depiction would not have to be of the actual person. If a person places a photo of someone nude from the neck down and says it was someone else, he or she still could run afoul of the law.
