Kronenberger Rosenfeld can help you with your nonconsensual pornography distribution or revenge porn case.

Nonconsensual pornography distribution can take many forms, but at its core it involves a person sharing with third parties a nude photo of a victim without the consent of the victim. The person sharing, distributing, or publishing the nude photograph may be an ex-boyfriend/girlfriend, ex-spouse, or an employee of a company that wrongfully accessed an account, drive, or other location where the victim's nude photo was stored. The sharing can occur over the internet, through mobile apps, or by sharing a non-digital photograph.

Revenge porn cases have been a significant part of our practice for years.

The motive of the person sharing the nude photos can be to take revenge against the victim (which is the basis for the common phrase, "revenge porn"), for financial gain, to swap with others, or for other reasons that may or may not have anything to do with the victim.

More importantly, the consequences can be devastating and life-altering. Nonconsensual pornography distribution involves a breach of  privacy of the highest magnitude, and it can negatively affect family and professional relationships forever. While legal damages resulting from nonconsensual pornography distribution may be difficult to quantify, the years of emotional distress and harm to employment can easily lead to damages in the seven figures.

Kronenberger Rosenfeld represents victims of nonconsensual pornography distribution and revenge porn by suing those responsible for the distribution of the victims' nude photographs or video. In fact, in 2014 the firm obtained the first civil revenge porn jury verdict in the State of California. Following that verdict, firm founder Karl Kronenberger testified in front of the California Assembly's Judiciary Committee in support of a revenge porn civil statute (AB 2643), which is now law in California. The firm continues to represent victims of nonconsensual pornography distribution, in California and across the country, and Karl Kronenberger was named to the Cyber Law and Business Report's "Hero's List" for his work representing victims of revenge porn.
