    The boyfriends should be held liable for everything.
    No. You are most certainly NOT allowed to encourage anything you "want's" to.

    You're correct. For example, Charles Manson didn't actually kill anyone himself. He encouraged others to kill and that's why he's in prison.

    to be fair he's in jail because the people who actually did the killing were young women, and the courts were at the time, and still are, sexist and don't generally consider women to be as responsible for their actions as men. men in the same situation would have been sitting in jail next to manson.

    That is absolutely ridiculous. Nice fallacy for lack of an argument though.

    Actually yes he is. Now in the end there are consequences to those actions of which some may be legal.

The only possible exception is if he has a signed contract from the copyright owner stating that he has the right to publish the photos. It's extremely unlikely he has that for any of them.
    The person who received the picture or person who took the picture is the owner unless illegally obtained. I think someone filming you in secret should be treated as a criminal act. However if you let someone take the picture or sent it to someone other than your own media, then you no longer own it.

    No, you are doing something I don't like by defending this scum and by engaging in your idiotic Dwight Schrute impression. You are not scum, that I know of, even if you are starting to piss me off. He takes pride in ruining peoples' lives for profit. He's scum. Your callous disregard for those lives and your refusal to acknowledge privacy and copyright laws do not change the fact that he is scum; they only make you look bad for defending and supporting scum.

    The person who took the picture owns the copyright to it and thus has the legal right to demand that it not be posted online. The physical picture itself (if there is one) is the property of the person she gives it to, but that person has no right to copy it or to distribute copies of it.

    Not true. In the case of celebrities for example that defence has never worked unless the picture was sold. If you give someone a picture and they post it on the internet as long as they are not making a profit, it's OK as it is there property to post.
