    Ima Fish: Do you really think that ignorance of the legal details surrounding this case is a bad thing? This case is ridiculous, and the fact that the courts are subject to dealing with insignificant frivolous crap like this feels like a huge disappointment to me. So some guy wasn't careful enough and now there are nude pictures of his wife on the internet? Boo-freaking-hoo. He's not out any money, there is no physical threat to his health, and this doesn't affect him professionally. What it comes down to is the fact that he and his wife are embarassed, but that shouldn't entitle him to any kind of monetary compensation. If anything it entitles this guy to deliver a light beating to the kid who posted the pictures. A little correctly throttled violence would probably do a lot of long term good in this situation.
