    I know, I know! "It's the Internet!" It happens regularly on the internet.

    But the internet is a pretty big space. Your neighborhood?.....not so much.

    Basically, I think people are bending over backwards as if this were different than any other theft because "It's the internet!!" Maybe I'm a bit jaded, but I think the internet is a lot like every other space.....creeps abound!

    And then there's the "celebrity factor" too. That makes it easier for people to go in one direction or another.

    Then throw in the sex, and we've got a trifecta

    It is a crime and the hacker right now is responsible. What will be interesting to see is apparently a few of the pictures leaked were of an American gymnast who at the time the pictures were taken was underage. That technically makes the pictures child pornography which would be a crime to anyone who has the pictures of this woman.

    Creeps do abound......which is a good reason not to keep naked selfies in the vicinity. The way I look at it is that hackers end up getting copies of whole movies even before they're released and they get credit card information from supposedly secure sources so if I happened to want to protect my images I simply wouldn't put them on the internet.

    ANYTHING you post online can be intercepted. There is no "private" and what you post persists. Welcome to the Worldwide Web 101A. It never was and the system wasn't designed for it, it was designed to share everything. You do know why the web was developed in the first place right? It didn't become commercial until later.
    No ****, it is not 100% secure, nothing is. However there is a certain level of security that is expected from say, Amazon.com, online banking, IRS tax forms transmitted, and MANY MANY other things. To just shrug and say, "oh, well what do you expect you used the internet of course your stuff is going to be stolen" seems to ignore modern internet use of today...an internet that is used for almost everything. Amongst other things, when Target accounts are hacked and celebrities personal accounts are hacked, it is a reminder that we have everything on the internet now and thieves (/hackers) are trying to take advantage of that, and continuous upgrades on securing data is required. However, just because someone gets their account hacked...or car broken into, you don't say "oh, well what do you expect you drive a car of course it is going to be broken into" seems callous and silly.

    Depends, if the owner of the photos or the person she sent them too uploaded them then that's a scandal. If someone physically hacked or took them from a device then that's stealing.

    Scandal or Crime?
    Owner of the photographs responsible or leaker responsible?

    Personally I can't believe the number of people that claim it's the owner of the photographs fault for taking them in the 1st place. They have a right to privacy.
    Yeah, I can't believe it either. People just kinda lose their common sense when anything to do with sex/women is involved. What if these were personal financial documents that were stolen? You think people would be saying it was their own fault for keeping that on their computers?? Heck no! It is a crime. But a woman with sexuality is not deserving of any respect, protection, or privacy apparently

    Not exactly.

    In the case of someone like Kate Upton her body is her primary asset. From a purely business perspective she should take any and all reasonable actions to preserve her image...just like Warren Buffet should protect his financial documents. Yeah, she got hacked and the hacker took something of value from her so he (presumably a "he") should be held accountable if caught but she should also be more cautious about what she does with imagery that might negatively impact her marketability.

    It's scandal for the public and a crime for the courts.

    As far as responsibility? Apple is responsible for creating a vulnerable environment, the photo takers are responsible for putting their pictures in that environment and the hacker is responsible for taking advantage of Apple and the photo takers vulnerability. Overall, the hacker - and nobody else - is responsible for the leak. The other plays in this scandal made poor choices, but their choices did not force the hacker to break the law and violate people's privacy.
