For many people - mostly female and female read - unwanted penis pictures as well as other revealing photos and verbal harassment are part of everyday life on the Internet. According to an UK study, 46 percent of the women surveyed have already received so-called Dickpics, 89 percent of them without having asked. 22 percent of the men surveyed said they had already sent such pictures, 21 percent of them said they had done so without being asked.

The children, ages 4 to 14, carry book bags more than 2 kilometers (a mile) from their thatched-roof huts on the banks of the Yamuna River to this impromptu, roadside classroom. There, they receive free lessons in math, science, English and physical education, taught by a former Indian diplomat and his wife.

This is a list of longest prison sentences ever given to a single person, worldwide. Listed are instances where people have been sentenced to jail terms in excess of a human lifetime. Note that many national legislations worldwide do not allow for such sentences .

The prisoners soon adopted prisoner -like behavior too. They talked about prison issues a great deal of the time. They ‘told tales’ on each other to the guards. They started taking the prison rules very seriously, as though they were there for the prisoners ’ benefit and infringement would spell disaster

Finland now wants to take action against this and is planning a change in the law. According to current Finnish law, the criminal offense of sexual harassment requires touching. This definition is to be expanded to include verbal harassment or harassment through explicit images in the future. A bill against so-called cyber flashing is to be discussed in the Finnish parliament next year, a spokesman for the Ministry of Justice told the AFP news agency.

Situation in Germany

In Germany too, the criminal offense of sexual harassment according to

§ 184i StGB presupposes contact. However, unsolicited, explicit images such as Dickpics according to § 184 StGB as the unauthorized distribution of pornographic writings are also a criminal offense, which can be punished with a prison sentence of up to one year or a fine. Verbal harassment is only punishable if it is an insult.

Prosecution is often not easy, however, as in many cases it is difficult to determine who is behind a social media profile. The

Dickstinction project helps those affected to file a corresponding criminal complaint. Dickstinction was created in February 2020 as part of the Berlin Legal Tech Hackathon 2020. The event regularly brings people from the fields of development, legal engineering and law together to solve legal problems with the help of digital tools.
