According to the Los Angeles Times a movement has begun to pass "Rihanna's Law." The proposed law is a response to a leaked photo of a battered Rihanna, reportedly taken the night the pop star was allegedly attacked by boyfriend Chris Brown. If passed, "Rihanna's Law" would prohibit the release of photos or information that exploits victims of crimes.

You might be thinking, "Isn't there already a law that already prohibits this?" And the answer is, yes. It's called "Mel's Law," which states that a violation occurs when there's proof that money was exchanged for the leaked photo. However, "Mel's Law" doesn't include provisions to prosecute individuals who publish/leak photos with no monetary gain.

One group backing "Rihanna's Law" is self-proclaimed Celebrity Rights Advocacy Group, STOParrazi, based out of Los Angeles. Terry Ahern, the group's president told the Times he believes Rihanna's Law would discourage employees of law enforcement agencies to release photos or information that exploits victims of violent crimes.

"The main goal is to protect victim's rights. If a private crime photo is distributed the receipt of money for that act is irrelevant and does not diminish the detrimental effect such public distribution of private crime photos, could have on the victim, the case itself, other victims of similar crimes etc.," STOParrazi states on their website.
