Professor Shubha Ghosh Discusses Legal Issues Around Removing Explicit Images Online

Crandall Melvin Professor of Law Shubha Ghosh, Director of the Syracuse Intellectual Property Law Institute, recently spoke with Spectrum News on the legalities of having explicit images, both juvenile and adult, removed from online platforms.

Ghosh doesn’t believe current laws go far enough in providing recourse for victims. “I think the law should give people private cause of action to go after revenge porn. The law should also put some requirements or restrictions on social media providers to try to prevent this from happening…just to rely on industry regulation alone probably would not do enough,” says Ghosh.

Professor Ghosh also spoke with WGN Radio on the same topic, starting at the 37 minute mark.
