California's new online hub helps you fight revenge porn

If you're a victim of revenge porn, the attempt to fight back can prove daunting. How do you get someone to pull the offending images? Where do you turn to for legal aid? California wants to offer some help. The state has launched a cyberexploitation hub that gives victims, police and companies the resources they need to respond to (and ideally, prevent) revenge porn. You can find a pro bono lawyer, for instance, or the best practices for website owners trying to protect their visitors. No, the hub isn't guaranteed to fix anything -- but it might provide an important first step when you're hurt, lost and seeking justice.
