Ways You Might Be Breaking the Law (With Your Tech)



1. Cellphone Porn

A picture's worth a thousand words‹most of them expletives if it's a naked photo you take with your cellphone. A recent survey shows that 20-percent of our nubile juvenile cellphone users have moved beyond dirty text messages and on to "sexting"-- sending naked or partially naked photos of themselves to friends. (The most famous case involved naked pics of 'High School Musical' star Vanessa Hudgens, meant for her boyfriend Zac Efron, which wound up on the Internet.) But it's not just embarrassing, it may be illegal. In Pennsylvania, for example, police have threatened to charge several teenagers with pornography for either sending or receiving dirty pics. The ACLU, meanwhile, has come to their defense, claiming that sending photos -- even provocative ones -- is protected free speech.
