Optic Nerve

The Fappening e quello che possiamo (dobbiamo) imparare

Article at adversus.it quoting Loz Kaye. Article in Italian, original quote follows:

STATEMENT ON PRIVACY BREACHES

Pirate Party Leader Loz Kaye said:

"Recent leaks of nude photos are obviously a major and callous breach of privacy. They also serve as a wake up call to tech firms that they have a responsibility to protect their customers' data.

But at the end of the day the real responsibility is on individuals not to be douchebags and violate people's personal lives. That takes active moral choice for which there is no quick technological or legislative solution.

What is clear is that we live in a society that increasingly accepts attacks on privacy, by individuals, the press and the state. After all, less famous men and women have their private lives exposed all too frequently.. Equally the mass surveillance state has gone as far as to intercept often sexually explicit images via webcams through the 'Optic Nerve' operation.

It's time to turn that tendency around. The key is consent, and building a society that values consent."
