Thank you for using JustAnswer.

No, not necessarily. It would be if the intent was for sexual abuse, arousal, etc... There has to be an intent to make it sexual for it to be illegal. If not, then it's not illegal.

Hope that clears things up a bit. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable.

Lawyer: ScottyMacEsq, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Again, if there's a sexual intent or for sexual arousal, then that would be illegal. But the intent of the person making and posting the video is what's at issue whether or not it's illegal.

Lawyer: ScottyMacEsq, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Of course I don't have any control over what the law is. I can only tell you that it's not illegal (unless there's the sexual arousal / abuse intent when making it). There are actually pretty strong freedom of speech implications there, so it would have to be with serious criminal intent in making and spreading the video that would make it illegal.

I know this is probably not what you wanted to hear, but it is the law. I hope that clears things up anyway. If you have any other questions, please let me know. If not, and you have not yet, please rate my answer AND press the "submit" button, if applicable.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
