Study in U.K. finds thousands of photos and videos lifted from conventional sites

Sexually suggestive images that young people have posted of themselves on conventional websites for friends and others are being lifted by porn sites, a U.K. study has reported.

In less than 48 hours of study, analysts with the Internet Watch Foundation found that more than 12,000 such images and videos had spread over 68 websites, the study said..

"Most of the images and videos (88 per cent) appeared on 'parasite websites,' meaning they were taken from the original area where they were uploaded and made public on other websites," the IWF reported.

Sarah Smith, a technical researcher with the foundation, said in a statement that it often comes across large quantities of self-generated sexual content copies from its original location.

"But this is the first time we've been able to demonstrate the extent to which this occurs."

Of the material surveyed, 7,147 were images and 5,077 were videos. Of the 12,224 images/videos, 10,776 were on parasite websites, the IWF said.

Unsettling indication

The study will be used as part of the U.K. Safer Internet Centre

Not really news as this sort of thing has been happening since the internet came into being.

If I wanted to stare at lifted Myspace mirror pics, I'd go back to Myspace.

As offensive as this is, if you don't want these images to be out in the wild, maybe you shouldn't upload them to begin with... We really need to start holding these people responsible for their own stupidity...

No matter how you slice it, it is wrong. Just imagine a few years from now when you are trying to get a job and someone pulls a video of you from a porn site.

Very true. Porn sites even steal images from each other. I can't even begin to count the number of images I've seen where one site has layered their name or logo over the top of some other site's name or logo (quite often very poorly) on the same images, which are often resized or otherwise altered.

They upload, we show it.

They don't upload, we can't show it.

Case closed. NEXT!

You think it's fair to blame the victims? Are they actually victims if they post pics publicly?

Can't really feel bad for "victims" that purposely upload suggestive images or video of themselves. If you don't want your slightly, or highly suggestive sexual images thrown around the web like this, don't upload them.

If anything, this is a good thing. It will make people think twice before uploading those images: "Do I really want to do this, and this picture forever on the web, and who knows where else?"

It is a good way to learn a lesson.
