I Will Try To Sue You

I Will Try To Sue You

SUBMITTED: I’m in school studying law, if I ever become lawyer I promise I will try to sue you and make a case law out of this, and for each person posted I’d ask for a small settlement since you profit off peoples misery and gossip.

You should intern for our legal team. I think if you really want to be a good lawyer (who cares about the constitution)… you need to play for the right team. Your submission is money and misery driven, not legally driven. Hating me isn’t the answer my child.- nik

Another Legal WIN for TheDirty.com

Another Legal WIN for TheDirty.com

Air Gingras: Is it legal to post someone’s photo on TheDirty.com without their permission?

YES YOU CAN, according to a 15-page decision issued yesterday by a federal judge in Los Angeles. Basically, the judge agreed with our position that using a photograph for the purpose of criticism is protected fair use under Section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Act.

This means if you want to “put someone on blast”, you can do that using a photo of the person, and you don’t need their permission. This is a big win for free speech rights. Imagine if you wanted to post something negative (or positive) about Donald Trump, but you couldn’t include his picture without his permission? That makes no sense, so we’re happy the court agreed with our view of the law.
