Man who created revenge porn site sentenced to 2.5 years’ jail.

Moore was known as “the most hated man on the Internet” for creating IsAnyoneUp.com, where he publicly posted nude or compromising photos, uploaded by angry exes seeking revenge. Hunter Moore, the operator of revenge pornography website IsAnyoneUp.com, has been sentenced to two and a half years in prison, his defense lawyer, Robert Holley, has said.Hunter Moore was sentenced by a federal judge in Los Angeles on Wednesday, nine months after he pled guilty to hacking and “aggravated identity theft.” He was facing up to seven years in jail and a $500,000 fine.

His victims – the subjects of the photographs, who did not consent to having the photos posted online – were often identified by name, alongside their social media and contact information. When released, Moore will be subject to three years of supervised release during which time he must declare all email accounts, screen names, passwords, and ISPs to the court. Moore solicited nude pictures from pissed-off exes and posted them on the gleefully vindictive Is Anyone Up, along with the identifying information of the people in the images. Moore’s sentence is only slightly higher than that of his accomplice Charlie Evens, who Moore paid to hack into women’s email accounts and grab nude photographs.

In one such statement, a 28-year-old woman recounted how topless photos of herself that she had taken and sent only to herself appeared on Moore’s website along with her name, Twitter account, and city she lived in. Although Moore became infamous as the “King” of revenge porn, his prison sentence is the result of a plea deal on two charges that have little to do with the core problems of revenge porn itself. Following his plea, Moore faced a minimum sentence of two years and a maximum sentence of seven in federal prison, according to the US department of justice. “He hid behind his online persona and engaged in aberrant behavior,” US district judge Dolly Gee said, according to the City News Service. “Now you must face the consequences of your own actions. She was sent “vile” messages and was even contacted by porn star Ron Jeremy to “talk business,” the court heard. “During most of the time period when my photo was on the website, I was in bed curled into a ball feeling unable to act or move,” she told the court. “At home, I was scared for my life.

Those charges stemmed from a scheme between Moore and Charles Evens, a hacker who illicitly accessed email accounts in order to steal nude photos, which he then sold to Moore. In December of last year, Noe Iniguez became the first person to be convicted under that law after posting a nude photograph of his ex to the Facebook page of her employer.

In the meantime Craig Brittain, another notorious revenge porn website operator who escaped a jail sentence because he did not live in a state with a revenge porn statute, and escaped a fine because it was his first offence, is trying to go straight with a ride-sharing start-up. Brittain reached agreement with the FTC in January that he would not post people’s nude photos on his website or anywhere else online and would destroy thousands of pictures in his possession.

His site – IsAnybodyDown.com – was a copycat of Moore’s website except that Brittain tricked women into sending him nude pictures, rather than hacking into accounts and stealing them, like Moore did. Having sent a DMCA notice to Google demanding that it remove links to dozens of news articles about him for “unauthorized use of photos of me and other related information.
