Carmine's video, the legalities

Postby Tybee Island » Thu Jul 18, 2013 7:54 am

I didn't know that someone could put an indecent video online without the other person's permission and not be in trouble with the police. Is that true?

In the states as long as it's not for profit and not a minor it's a slap on the wrist. The person has committed a crime if they are threatening you with publication and will refrain only of you have sex with them. Which is why Carmine couldn't use that on Lauren however with Michael arrested he is now offering Lauren one more night for Michael's freedom! If you were the person who filmed the event, you would be considered a copyright holder as well, and may have rights to pursue a federal copyright infringement claim. Any media outlet that publishes the material can be responsible for publicity right and copyright violations as well. If Lauren had published it than Carmine has the right to have it pulled! Great law! However, publication of a private sex tape, as described above, would not likely be protected under these legal defenses. A court can award substantial damages and possibly attorneys fees against any person responsible for publishing or republishing the material.

So, it's not a police matter, but a civil court matter. It doesn't seem right. I know, in Genoa City, they have their own justice system. Haha

I do think people on Michael's side..perhaps Christine will find something to arrest him on. Leslie is his lawyer! Who would he get to bail him out? Aunty Rosella? I think this could be how Leslie figures out that Rose is not dead and who Rose is! Honestly who in Genoa City would bail him out?

Auntie Rosella....I like it! Christine is too busy to help Michael. She went into her office and never came out again.

LMAO!!! Yeah that girl is busy, she never seems pop in or call or nothing but yet she came back to be with Paul. He doesn't see her any more than he did when she was out of town so what was the point in her moving back?

Why should she help Michael. Michael didn't help her.
