'Revenge porn' law in California could pave way for rest of nation

http://j.mp/1bDIyZK  (NBC News)

    A bill that would criminalize "revenge porn" - nude or sexual photos,
    generally of former wives or girlfriends, posted online by an angry ex
    - could pave the way for other states to adopt similar laws, putting
    perpetrators in jail for six months if convicted a first time, and up
    to a year for repeat violations. The bill, already approved by the
    California Senate, is expected to go to the state Assembly as soon as
    this week, despite concerns from some lawmakers and experts who fear
    it could curtail First Amendment rights.

This legislation was just signed into law here in California. I
personally am doubtful that it will be generally workable.
