    Massachusetts court says 'upskirt' photos are legal

    (CNN) -- Massachusetts' highest court ruled Wednesday that it is not illegal to secretly photograph underneath a person's clothing -- a practice known as "upskirting" -- prompting one prosecutor to call for a revision of state law.
    The high court ruled that the practice did not violate the law because the women who were photographed while riding Boston public transportation were not nude or partially nude.

    A "slippery" slope? A "hairy" situation?

    Simple solution, wear pants, or at very least, don't go commando if you're wearing a skirt.

    I can see why they ruled this way. The law in question specifies nude or partially nude. The women in question were neither.

    I think updating the law to prevent this probably does bring up some difficult questions, though.

    Oddly enough, going commando would have made those photos a crime!

    Actually I don't think that is the case since a skirt is clothing is it not? Interesting question anyway.

    Simple solution: Wear the biggest damned strap on you can find and a short skirt.

    This solution works for virtually any problem I can think of.
