Breast get ’em copy­righted!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

WOMEN are be­ing urged to copy­right their BOOBS.

It’s a bizarre bid to stop images and videos of them end­ing up on the in­ter­net with­out their own­ers’ con­sent.

And ex­perts reckon it’s be­com­ing an in­creas­ingly com­mon prac­tice in the wake of “re­venge porn” – a grow­ing form of on­line bul­ly­ing in which pri­vate in­ti­mate pho­tos are posted on­line.

In some cases it’s hard to force web­sites to take down the of­fend­ing ma­te­rial.

And us­ing copy­right in­fringe­ment law is a use­ful tool in a vic­tim’s ar­se­nal.
