if any here wd have suggestions about the following, i wd be grateful.
apparently ignoring a problem with the idea that most rational adults in the
internet age are governed by a sense of decency and good taste is apparently
not going to work in this situation.

if an individual's right to privacy and right to contract over video
material that others publish on the internet is violated, what is the best
way to remedy this. by privacy i mean that videotapes of gynecological exams
are not widely published on the internet for the jackals to sit and drool
over, that is a metaphor, but the general idea is about the same. my
apologies, again, the original assumption that most people are governed by a
sense of human decency and good taste has not applied in this given case.
there is an appetite to see pain manifest, which encourages repeated
incidences of violation of privacy and visual dismemberment. i am being
oblique. if someone has a suggestion please do voice it here. i may not
follow it. i do not consider myself a citizen of any country at present, so
there is no benefit to anyone to be gained in the resolution of this
theoretical issue.
