Why do young people post porn videos to the internet

There are a few common reasons that drive young people to post porn videos to the internet. The two most obvious ones are the desire to earn cash money and the need to rebel against authority or feeling of oppression. Sometimes young people have an incentive to take a or to do something crazy, which seems fun at the time but which later on in life my prove as an event or an action which compromised your future. You were young, carefree and had no responsibilities. Several years on you have an established career, a family to feed and a reputation to maintain.

You aren’t the person you were all those years ago, yet you know you can only hide for so long before your past may become exposed, especially as you grow in popularity and people start to search for your name online to find out information about you. You start to struggle to sleep at night, and you find yourself feeling quite anxious and distressed. There might be a video that you regret filming which presents you in a reckless, immature, and humiliating light, or might be a video of you online on a porn site from several years ago. Although you had made that video for fun at the time you cannot help but wonder how widely it has spread online. Perhaps it has been published to several websites, or it has been downloaded by many individuals. You speculate the worst possible case scenario and try to put it in the back of your mind that perhaps it will never be discovered.

However deep down it is your ultimate desire for this video to be removed or at least to no longer be easily accessible via a google search so that you are no longer linked to it. You want this video to be destroyed, deleted, and hidden. Porn video regret is an issue that tens of thousands of adults in the UK suffer from.

One of our clients, let’s call him James, contacted us, having posted a porn video on the internet several years ago. Over eight years ago he decided it might be fun to film a raunchy video with his girlfriend and both at the time and did not think much of it. All he was thinking about was the couple of hundred pounds that he earnt from uploading it to just one website. It was only all these years later, after James researched his name on Google that he was presented with links to several porn websites where a video had been distributed without his knowledge. Someone who didn’t particularly like him, found the porn video on the internet, downloaded it and uploaded it again, to various porn websites, together with James’ full name.

After many sleepless nights and trying to contact the website operators himself asking them to remove the video from the porn sites, where James could find the videos, he had no luck and was met with automated and blank responses. He knew that there was a legal route to achieve his goals and we were able to offer him this relief that indeed we could help him. James could not understand how this video had been so widely distributed without his consent and was distraught to find that the video had even been cut up into smaller videos which meant people could find individual clips. The methods to have these videos taken down depended on the context behind how the videos were made in the first place and we told James that he needed to own the intellectual property rights to the video and if he did not we would need to get those for him.

He told us that indeed he had filmed this video on his own accord and he therefore owned the rights and the copyright. We were therefore able to advise James that we would serve a Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice (DMCA) on the website operators where James was able to identify the existence of the videos. The purpose of this notice is to inform the website operator that the material they are showing on their website infringes copyright.

Another route for James, if he was worried that the website operators may not all comply with our DMCA notices, was that we could submit an application under a Right to Be Forgotten to Google and to each of the website operators. The outcome of a multiple Right to Be Forgotten request would almost erase James' identity from the internet in relation to all the videos on the porn sites. Protecting your integrity The lawyers at our firm will always strive to do whatever it takes so that you can go to sleep at night without needing to worry about something you did in the past which is now affecting your life.

The law is there to protect individuals like James, to provide people with the opportunity to have a clean slate and to protect their reputation. There are different laws in different countries which would help you facilitate removal of porn films from the internet. Videos on the internet where an individual is naked and participating in acts which could be seen as risqué in nature can have a negative impact on one’s image where they are trying to gain respect such as through being a parental figure or to maintain a new job. Protecting your integrity to maintain status as a role model or so that people take you seriously in life, could all come crumbling down if someone is able to hold something against you to use it in a negative way to defame you and your character.

You don’t need to feel embarrassed

James was very happy with our efforts to resolve this matter to allow him to maintain his clean reputation online and finally hang his dirty laundry behind him. It is common for clients to feel embarrassed to admit to a choice they made in the past, but we encourage them to not feel this way and to embrace the opportunity that we are able to give them to fix it.

We strive for our clients to be happy, and to be able to continue living their lives without needing to worry about content on the internet that may or may not discredit them in the future.
