COLORADO’S REVENGE PORN LAWS

Last Updated on

Colorado’s revenge porn laws, CRS §§ 18-7-107 & 108, went into effect on July st, 2014 and they are tough.

These laws, in my opinion, are the best revenge porn laws in the nation. Other states that have revenge porn laws are Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Hawaii, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin

Colorado’s laws give revenge porn victims a private cause of action and require mandatory damages awards when plaintiffs prove their revenge porn claims. This makes it easier for plaintiffs to recover actual damages than they could when they were limited to using Colorado’s invasion of privacy claim for the public disclosure of embarrassing private facts.

See Robert C. Ozer, P.C. v. Borquez, 940 P.2d 371 (Colo. 1977). The new laws also give revenge porn victims enforceable intellectual property rights in images that depict their private intimate parts.
