Mizzou Law Student’s Article about Revenge Porn Cited by Al Jazeera America

June 23rd, 2014

Allison Tungate

An article written by third-year law student Allison Tungate was recently cited in an opinion piece published by Al Jazeera America entitled, “Learning to Live with ‘Love Porn.’” The editorial argues that there is no moral argument for forcing former significant others to delete nude images shared willingly, but it also incorporates Tungate’s article, published this year in the journal Information & Communications Technology Law, as a critique of the editorial’s claims. In her article, “Bare Necessities: the Argument for a ‘Revenge Porn’ Exception in Section 230 Immunity,” Tungate states that victims of revenge porn (which she defines as the “online posting of nude or sexually explicit photographs or videos of a former lover without his or her consent”) should be entitled to legal recourse in the face of broad First Amendment protections that allow website owners and Internet providers to host such images.
