‘Revenge Porn’ Site Operator Asks Google for Privacy Help

SAN FRANCISCO — Craig Brittain, who ran the “revenge porn” website IsAnybodyDown.com, has filed multiple takedown notices to Google under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Brittain has asked Google to block search results for 23 sites that wrote about the Federal Trade Commission’s decision against him, claiming that the publishers posted "unauthorized information" about him as well as "photos which are not 'fair use.'"

Last month, the FTC banned Brittain from posting nude photos or videos of women without their consent. Under the settlement with the FTC, Brittain will also have to destroy all the images and other personal information related to the women.

The FTC’s complaint against Craig Brittain, who wasn’t fined or jailed for his actions, alleged that he used deception to acquire and post intimate images of women, then referred them to another website he controlled, where they were told they could have the pictures removed if they paid hundreds of dollars.

In a statement this week, he defended aspects of the former "revenge porn" site such as its bounty system that let users post rewards of at least $100 for submitting information and photos of specific individuals.

Brittain noted on the site this was "not an attempt to buy revenge porn" but just an attempt to "formally transition into regular amateur adult content."
