Celebrity Photo Hacking - The Background Story

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/originalguy-full-story-icloud-hacker-081044692.html

Apparently there are a lot of people out there in the world who steal images of naked women and then just hold them in their personal collection with no intent to distribute them or make any money off of them.   I guess this makes some sense, when you consider the number of people caught every year doing weird shit like using a shoe camera or a hidden bathroom camera. 

The story of the guy who stole huge amounts of music and who asked that it all be destroyed when he died is another interesting tale.

I guess the lesson is that if you take a naked picture or video of yourself and put it on a computer somewhere, you should basically assume that, every day after you store that picture until the death of the thief, said thief will have the opportunity to jerk off to that photo or video.  As Bruce Hornsby once said, "That's just the way it is."
