How a Photo Can Ruin Your Life

Posted on: 6 May 2007

“Oh what an adorable baby,” you say. You may love those Madonna photos of newborns with their mommies, but wait…the photopolice may be lurking…

This is the fix we’re in, now that computers have opened the barn door on kiddie porn. The FBI has issued blanket requests to photo processing labs and computer repair shops in some cities to be on the lookout for pictures of kids in compromising positions, urging them to call the authorities whether they’re sure or not about a picture’s legality. The big national chains that have photo processing labs — Costco, CVS, Rite-Aid, and Wal-Mart — have company policies that compel them to notify the police about any criminal activity they see in customers’ photos. And when children are involved, they’re more than willing to err on the side of caution…

…Tragically for a number of people all over the country, innocent family photos turned over to the police have led to financial ruin, divorce, debt, public humiliation, and lifelong scorn as a registered sex offender for mothers and fathers. (via PopPhoto).

So I ask you, “How much skin is too much skin?”
