Peter Vogel Discusses Snapchat Data Breach with E-Commerce Times


E-Commerce Times discussed the recent Snapchat data breach with Gardere Partner Peter S. Vogel. Mr. Vogel, who chairs the Firm's Internet, eCommerce and Technology Industry Team, pointed out that the resulting dissemination of what could be nude photos of minors adds another wrinkle to the breach. This particular hack also exposes others to prosecution under child pornography laws, Mr. Vogel said. "Assuming the person who posted the photos is an adult, he could be prosecuted not only under those laws but also because he broke Snapchat's terms of service, which no doubt required users to promise not to use the service for anything illegal."

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
