Is It Illegal To Take Photos Of Someone Without Permission?

Getty Images Taking a photo for commercial purposes is a different thing – as it is if you’ve purchased a ticket to a concert have to abide by their terms – however legally, nobody can claim copyright to their own image. “So long as you are on public property you can publish the photo,” says Stacks law firm. “But if you publish a photo taken by someone else you run into copyright issues. Get permission to use it.” However, lawyer Geoff Baldwin says if someone has a voyeuristic purpose, which can generally be thought of as capturing images of private activities for your own or someone else’s sexual gratification, it is likely to be an offence under the Crimes Act 1900 [NSW]. The distribution of ‘intimate images’ – like revenge porn – can also be an offence under the same Act. Under Australian law, it is also an offence in…

A third of young people polled by UN, report being a victim of online bullying

Speaking out anonymously through the youth engagement tool U-Report, almost three-quarters of young people also said social networks, including Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter, are the most common place for online bullying. “Connected classrooms mean school no longer ends once a student leaves class, and, unfortunately, neither does schoolyard bullying”, said UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore. “Improving young people’s education experience means accounting for the environment they encounter online as well as offline.” Via SMS and instant messaging, young people were asked a series of questions about their experiences of online bullying and violence, including who they thought should be trying to end it. Some 32 per cent of those polled believed governments should end cyberbullying, 31 per cent put the onus on young people themselves to stop the harassment and 29 per cent cited internet companies as bearing the chief responsibility. “One of the key messages that we can clearly see from…

North Park Junior High’s ‘ESSA’ status tackled

Lockport City School District and North Park Junior High School administrators believe recently created comprehensive education plans will change the determinations both got from the New York State Education Department saying they were in need of improvement.  In January, the state education department released its determinations for the classification of districts under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), the new federal education law, and deemed Lockport a “target” district and North Park a “Comprehensive Support and Improvement” school.  At the time of the classification, North Park Principal Bernadette Smith said she believed the main thing that led to the school’s CSI designation was the number of students who do not take the state assessments, which are optional. Smith noted the ESSA criteria is based on a 95 percent participation rate in the tests, and at North Park, 61 percent of students took the tests last year.  Smith said in a recent interview that some of…

‘What Would You Do?’ focuses on racism between children

Tonight on “What Would You Do?” we cast actors to play children bullying their classmates because of race. Two white friends make fun of their white male peer for spending time with a black girl from school. We brought our hidden cameras to Alabama, where a child named McKenzie Adams died by suicide late last year. Her family says the fourth grader had been receiving derogatory remarks from classmates because of her race and friendship with a white student. In addition to bullying in schools, cyberbullying has also become a serious issue for children. According to a report that was released in July by the National Center for Education Statistics, online bullying had a 3.5% increase from the 2014-2015 school year to the 2016 school year for 12 to 18 year olds. In tonight’s episode, we see how customers react when a child is told by her classmates that she…

Attorney Calls For Legislation To Address Revenge Porn, Cyberbullying

Attorney-at-Law and Child Rights Specialist Ricardo Sandcroft is calling for legislation to address issues such as revenge porn and cyberbullying affecting Jamaican teens. Children’s Advocate Diahann Gordon Harrison on Tuesday said there was a direct correlation between increasing cases of revenge porn among high-school students and the lack of legislation to tackle cyberbullying locally. Speaking Wednesday on Power 106’s Morning Agenda, Mr. Sandcroft said the 11-page Child Pornography Act is not adequate and is ineffective to tackle the issue of revenge porn.  “But when you look at other legislations coming from around the world, they are more effective in the sense that they cover even crimes that tie into whether the child has been solicited, trafficking and all of these things; and even though we have a trafficking legislation, that in itself is still inadequate and ineffective,” he argued.  Source link

Attorney: Accuser in Kettle extortion case was not vetted properly

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The attorney of former state Sen. Nicholas Kettle believes the case against his client was mishandled because the man who accused him of extorting sex and blackmail is related to a state trooper. The extortion charges against Kettle was dropped this week after the new evidence was filed in the case, including Facebook messages between him and his accuser spanning three years that showed a friendship, according to DiMaio. “The tone [of the messages] is completely opposite of what he was testifying to,” DiMaio added. Kettle was charged with two counts of extortion and blackmail after he was accused of extorting sex from a male page at the Rhode Island State House. DiMaio said then-Attorney General Peter Kilmartin didn’t properly examine the case, which changed in January after the current attorney general, Peter Neronha, took over and gave the case a fresh look. According to DiMaio,…

Rehtaeh Parsons’s father to co-write book about tragedy with author Susan McClelland

Glen Canning and Susan McClelland Rehtaeh Parsons’s father, Glen Canning, will co-write a book about his daughter’s sexual assault and subsequent suicide, to be published by Goose Lane Editions in 2020. The book will be co-written with journalist and non-fiction author Susan McClelland. The deal was arranged by Rob Firing at the Transatlantic Agency.

He will also interrogate his own personal history, including his experience of being abused as a child by a family member. McClelland’s previous books include Sungju Lee’s Every Falling Star, which recounts a 12-year-old’s life on the streets in North Korea, and Mariatu Kamara’s Bite of the Mango, about a 12-year-old girl who survived an attack in rural Sierra Leone, which…
