Colorado’s New Revenge Porn Laws

Colorado’s new revenge porn laws, CRS §§ 18-7-107 & 108, go into effect today and they are tough.

These laws, in my opinion, the best revenge porn laws in the nation at this time. Other states that have revenge porn laws are Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Hawaii, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin.Gavel-Sepia-Background-300x211

Colorado’s laws give revenge porn victims a private cause of action and require mandatory damages awards when plaintiffs prove their revenge porn claims. This makes it easier for plaintiffs to recover actual damages than they could when they were limited to using Colorado’s invasion of privacy claim for the public disclosure of embarrassing private facts. See Robert C. Ozer, P.C. v. Borquez, 940 P.2d 371 (Colo. 1977). The new laws also give revenge porn victims enforceable intellectual property rights in images that depict their private intimate parts.
