I've received many queries about the website IsAnyoneUp.com. The site permits (and effectively encourages) people to post naked or explicit photos of individuals which are then linked to the name of the people portrayed in the images. Often the posting of such photos amounts to an actionable invasion of privacy, publication of private facts, intentional infliction of emotional distress or even defamation (not to mention other potential civil and criminal actions). This is true, in particular, when the individual depicted has not consented to the publication of his or her image.
