Live yes that is least -- -- -- their waving around and we gonna get to the legal.
Powell right now at least -- old.
Folks is legal -- joining us from our Chicago bureau attack roll -- criminal defense attorney and Fox News contributor so ladies so you're gonna get.
You meet a guy -- a ball you gonna date and then he does something bad like beats you up badly is the ball responsible.
All you go to match dot com if you -- -- today.
And you meet the guy and then he -- you according to this woman within any trivial like say go to sue the dating site for ten million dollars.
Lisa I mean it doesn't seem to me as though there's any -- any did you feel like we have these days well first I hate this scenario and second I think legally -- probably right but I would.
I would -- this as an example of where we need to change the law -- -- gets shouldn't some of these sites.
He illegally held responsible when they hook people up together.
That may be that they could have known or they should've known that at the guy has an assault conviction or something else and they still make maps these people like that but -- does does this.
Gov website match dot com in this case does that.
Have any more responsibility.
To carry had a background check on somebody who's gonna date somebody that -- ball doesn't know somebody who walks into a ball looking for a day.
No because match dot com is exactly like a bar you walk and you find all kinds of different people you need guys to say they're married but they're not married and their -- You meet sex offenders -- you don't know their sex offenders.
All these people it's your duty to find out what kind of person that says and if your reasonable person.
You're gonna do your own background -- you're gonna talk to your -- Bryant or his friends or what ever.
But it buyer be Wear.
And if you don't have heat their reasonable -- actually looking into the person you're going out -- Then you know unfortunately these situations happen it's terrible.
But it but it happens hammered don't you think of web site though has has a heightened responsibility.
Does somebody just going into -- what you gonna do -- you're gonna try to do a background check on somebody has met at a bar it's not really feasible to do that whereas if you're signing up for -- dot com.
You're going through certain things you're you know you're going through certain -- -- us.
Well truck assembly legitimately out of -- -- different it's too different to me than just going into a bar some Friday night.
No and I disagree I mean.
You're Yasser paying for some kind of serve -- But at the same time just like you're going and -- -- -- you're paying for drinking -- paying for the service that.
Your waiter or whatever.
They don't have any obligation whatsoever.
You're using the site to sift through these people and find somebody who's potentially a match for you they're not I think you -- -- army wanted to.
Well I -- was riding in here says if we go down this road.
-- would make the most the guy's mother responsible ultimately -- for all of they do we hide away -- -- -- don't think we stopped well I just think and and cameras writing -- both right on the laws that now stands you're absolutely right I'm just saying I think there should I think it's different into camera just made my point for me when -- go to a bar.
You're paying for the service of you getting the drinking and going to the servers service to to be -- during.
That's all -- paying for whatever else happens happens.
That's not what you expect to what you would depend in part for that service knew that went for match dot com you aren't paying for a certain amount of reliability that they've been.
If you know -- -- Thomas look through these people that they're not -- that they're not you know -- easy.
Potential -- that you pay for that service at that -- that's why I think this is very different but they've added I guess it.
Did Dave said another example to -- that be -- Ohio.
Whoa hold all of the wed but.
Is a dangerous place -- their what he'd go on whether it's FaceBook when you meet people but FaceBook any other social sites.
It's a dangerous world we've -- got to be Smart probably.
Right and I agree at least that this is definitely an opportunity for.
I think maybe create some precedent -- -- and new lives but do you want more allies you have at at what point do you stop with these -- If you look at these -- you look at twit -- -- that they require that you -- you're the actual person but people don't.
Do that is -- with god that -- back.
You know Twitter you don't have to be the person you're you're representing yourself to be Zell is not a violation of why this is just going to be a very slippery slope of.
We aren't -- that's a good point I represented myself to be Smart and funny on -- when he true men and clearly neither of those things.
A hard one other thing I want to get you guys have thoughts on this other one did that 23 -- -- -- filing suit against.
A revenge porn site I don't even know what that means either of those woods revenge -- Honestly yeah well John McCain let's look at you compute -- on the know how I would vote what worries that what why.
Feeling that they have been that they they're their images have been used against what they want it that there images -- about that have not been paid for any of this stuff and that's you that's illegal when I didn't.
-- really -- to be used on -- -- site.
Is that right.
Now it's ten -- -- credit porn site right it's it's a website again.
It's yeah it's another website right it's not quite so well that wants that Laura probably the way they are the images are being used camera.
Well I think that they said that the argument is that they're using their need image or likeness in legal terms against against -- well armed and without their permission -- without compensation I I.
You know again there's no precedents here.
We're gonna see a lot of Estrada and I and -- pattern if you released but this is gonna go on and on and not have to start creating lot.
I think this actually there is there is case clog up for this with in this case because you are using people's images their personalities against their will.
Without compensating them and there are laws in every state about using -- -- but not doing that.
So I think in this case -- have a stronger case in the first case we talked about although I guess I wanna change along that first case.
All right legal -- -- lease whale and -- rolled up.
I've great to see you both as always thanks for being hit -- thanks for being here you come with me -- apparently.
