Today, I read a story that I found disheartening. A woman found out that footage of her had been used in a “Girls Gone Wild” video without her consent and when, in fact, she had explicitly refused to be filmed nude. Another person at the bar, despite the woman’s protests, pulls her top down, and the video goes to market.
Years later, a mother of two, she hears from a friend that the footage was used and sued. The jury decides 11-1 that she “implied consent” by her actions–despite repeatedly saying “no,” which can be heard and seen on the film. She might not want anyone to profit from a violation of her rights, but I guess it’s just #HFSF
