Nov. 18, 2014 (Mimesis Law) -- Ari Waldman, Professor at New York Law School, talks with Lee Pacchia about the recent theft and online dissemination of intimate photos belonging to a number of celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton, among others. Waldman feels that it's time to change certain provisions of the Communications Decency Act to prevent websites such as Reddit and 4Chan from protecting the anonymity of online harassers. "We need to make it easier for victims [of online harassment] to find redress," he says.
