Submission + - DickiLeaks data loss saga exposes Oz sportsmen (sophos.com)

An anonymous reader writes: A young woman has published nude photos of football players from high-flying Australian Football League club St. Kilda, rapidly accumulating thousands of Twitter followers as a result.

Varying accounts exist of how she came by the photos. The youngster is reported to have claimed that she took the photos herself. Another report documents a counterclaim by the manager of team captain Nick Riewoldt, one of the pictured players. In the counterclaim, the photos were copied from the laptop of a teammate who snapped the photos on a club trip to the USA last year.

The whole sorry mess also brings into question current laws about who gets the rights to a photo. In many countries, the law comes from a time when photographs were comparatively difficult to take, develop, publish, index and search.
