'Revenge porn' made illegal in California
"The American state has made it a criminal offence for people to post explicit pictures of their exes online to humiliate former partners.
"Revenge porn" - where explicit photos of people are posted on the internet by former lovers or spouses to humiliate an ex - has been made illegal in California.
In the first law of its kind, the American state has made it a crime for anyone to take and circulate such photographs without consent with the intention to harass or annoy.
Anyone found guilty could now face six months in jail, or a $1,000 fine."
