My ex wife posted ads with full naked pictures of herself looking for sex on Craig's list while we were married. We finally got divorced.
I have printed copies of the photos, can I share them or post them on the internet?
I know they came from the internet which is a public domain. Is there an expectation of privacy for her. I didn't post the naked pics, she did. I dont want to get in any legal trouble for sharing them.
New Jersey’s invasion of privacy law, enacted in 2003 prohibits selling, providing, publishing, distributing, or otherwise disseminating nude or sexual photos of another person without that person’s permission.
We all understand why you are so angry. But why end up doing something that will make a bad situation worse and further entangle the two of you. The best way to hurt her is to move on with your life and forget her. Don't open up yet another can of worms....
It is illegal in NJ and has serious penalties including jail time to post nude pictures of anyone without their permission. Even if you took the pictures, let alone the issues of her copyright to these particular pictures. In short, anything you do to someone with the intent to embarrass and humiliate them is likely also going to be harassment as well, and perhaps would lead to a TRO/FRO against you as well.
As noted, NO GOOD CAN COME FROM THIS. That is why it is not necessary that you know a law to be found guilty of breaking one - because in most cases common sense will tell you that you are doing something wrong even if you didn't know the exact law you were breaking at the time. It is common sense that humiliating someone by posting nude pictures that they did not allow you to use in a way they did not intend could come with some serious legal consequences.
