Pro will argue that the intentional leaking of media distributed without the consent of the subject which consists of said subject in compromising or sexually revealing manners should be criminalized and treated as a felony.

Con will argue that this should not be treated as a felony.

The actual leaking/ placing them online can't be felony. Don't people get put on news or newspaper photos without permission. Do they sue. Also make sure you're ready to reply rather than forfeit.

Police not investigating leaking but rather hacking. Not a felony thank you.

Agree with previous two. If "leaking" photos was illegal, many magazines would go out of business.

However, obtaining the photos is most certainly a crime.

But in the case of Theft, it is usually the amount of the 'product' that would determine the difference between a misdemeanor and a felony.

The only issue being here, while the photos may have sold for quite a large sum to certain markets, the actual value of a photo saved in a cloud storage has minimal value.

So I believe it is a misdemeanor, not a felony.

I don't think the leaking is the felony part. I think the hacking of the system to get those photos is the felony part.

Because while I'd say that it is highly criminal to attack cloud systems like this, I'd consider the distribution of these pictures as rather legal.

I am actually not sure if the thing that should be treated as felony is a. the mere extraction of the pictures or b. the distribution or the c. combination of both.
