Anonymous websites like Anon-IB that post nude photographs of women are difficult to control because the law has not kept up with the technology that makes these sites possible. Bloomington High School was among 67 Illinois high schools in which images of female students purportedly appeared on the Anon-IB website. The station discovered photographs of students from schools across the state, including four Catholic schools. Most of the photographs were of underage females, and were posted without their knowledge or consent. It is a crime to post a person's photograph on the Internet without consent.
Illinois is one of more than 35 states that have so-called "revenge laws," making it a crime to publicly disseminate embarrassing and intimate content without permission. In the case of Anon-IB, it is even more difficult since the site appears to emanate from an overseas server and there could be a question of jurisdiction. Cases like this seem to be proliferating on the Internet.
Earlier this year, the Marine Corps shut down a private website where Marines were posting nude photographs of female soldiers unknown to the women. In other high profile incidents, a murder streamed live on Facebook, as did the sexual assault of a Chicago teenager. Clevenger said websites like Anon-IB draw in viewers by posting pictures of females that their users might know.
If you want to find somebody who went to your high school or who lives in your community and you want to see what they look like naked, this website would give you that opportunity. Clevenger said there is a danger is that the site's users could then "potentially access these women if they wanted to. They don't think they are doing any harm looking at these pictures. They don't have any empathy or sympathy for what that woman would experience by seeing her naked body on line," Clevenger added.
Part of this is societal. We often value women for how they look. He called the site "deplorable. Clevenger said school officials -- and parents -- often don't learn about such incidents until they they hear about them directly from students. Clevenger said she advises women not to take "selfies" or allow themselves to be videotaped when they are naked, and not to share nude photos with others. She said even if women don't share these photos, there is the possibility that a phone or computer containing these images could be accessed by someone else. Anyone whose photo appears without his or her consent should take a screen shot of the image with the date and time it was captured, as well as the user name or of the person who posted it if that is available, and contact law enforcement, Clevenger said.
Schools have worked to reduce cyber-bullying, she added, but now need to address the placing inappropriate content of a sexual nature on the Internet and social media sites. And parents don't want to discuss this topic either," Clevenger said. A petition is circulating to get the Federal Bureau of Investigations to shut down the Anon-IB B site, alleging it promotes child pornography and violence against women. Clevenger said Facebook, Google and Instagram have confronted similar issues with inappropriate content, but are increasing taking steps to remove those images as quickly as possible.
One of the problems, Clevenger said, is that so much content is posted, those companies cannot react quickly enough.
