[...] Most of these pictures spread like wildfire and these people become the focus wherever they go which is disturbing.[3]The point of coming up with laws to effectively address the issue has been a daunting one since there are lots of controversy surrounding the same. According to Clare, Erika, new laws against revenge porn do not guarantee success in stopping the evil.[4]. Revenge porn should basically be criminalized and condemned in the nest terms possible.
