Florida looking to crack down on 'revenge porn': Term used for nude photos submitted by ex-partners

Bill approved by House subcommittee

Florida is looking to crack down on what some call "revenge porn."

It's a term used for nude or risqué photos of ex-girlfriends or wives submitted to websites by their former partners.

A Florida legislator is trying to make it a felony to post naked pictures that have identifying information on them such as name or age without that person's consent.

Harsher penalties would be given out for any pictures of anyone under 18 years old.

A House subcommittee passed the measure, but so far, there has been no vote scheduled at the Florida House of Representatives.

What do you think of banning 'revenge porn?'
