    Upskirt Photography - Legal or Illegal???

    Massachusetts court says 'upskirt' photos are legal - CNN.com

    (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.

    No expectation of privacy in a public domain. Plus they want you to - that's why they wear skirts.

    This is ridiculous. How in the hell can anyone think this should be legal?

    Also, according to law, it'd be illegal if she was going commando. Hint hint, ladies.

    People who do this are pigs, but if you're wearing undies then it's not like they're photographing anything special. You've seen one... you've seen them all.

    Because the law wasn't written to cover this situation. I certainly hope the Massachusetts lawmakers amend the law to cover this.

    Thought blaming the victim was discredited years ago.
