Massachusetts' highest court ruled yesterday that it is not illegal to secretly photograph or videotape underneath a person's clothing, CNN reports. My first reaction to reading this story was "Hold on, wait, what?" I was shocked that something that strikes me as being so blatantly violent and an invasion of privacy could be ruled as legal. This practice, known as "upskirting" was ruled lawful because, "it did not violate the law because the women who were photographed while riding Boston public transportation were not nude or partially nude." The ruling came about after a 32 year old man was caught videotaping up the skirts of women on the Boston public transportation system in a sting operation by police in 2010.
