Scarlett Johansson, Mila Kulis Hacking Issues – Will The Lawsuits Increase?

LawFuel.com – The growing propensity for celebrities and others to have their phones hacked is creating increasing alarm among the celebrity and political community as the law needs to keep pace with the growing ability of sophisticated telephone and other devices to record and transmit the most intimate audio and visual content around the Net.

Apart from legal concerns generally and an almost certain increase in lawsuits relating to privacy and other issues, the law is able to protect private material that is illegally obtained, the real issue is how to set up effective enforcement measures that will protect celebrities and even perfectly normal people from having their most private lives “hacked.”

The FBI are already investigating the Johansson and Kulis hacking situation, but around 50 A-listers are already on the hacking list, according to reports.

The FBI believe they can identify the hackers in this case, but the real question is how to protect ourselves from future hacking ‘events’ as technology becomes even more sophisticated and intrusive.
