Initially there was a startling report posted on reddit. In it a blue belt aired his complaints regarding the men from a site called girlsgrappling.com who were recording women’s matches from a local tournament:
Hey guys I don’t know much about law so hopefully you guys can tell me if this is within law or whatever. I’ve been watching these two guys who run ” girlsgrappling.com” record female matches at all the local tournaments in my area. They have recorded matches of my girlfriend, her friends, and friends of mine I’ve made through cross training. It looks innocent at first but the more you look at their website and YouTube channel you can tell it is for sure weird as fuck and definitely violating and invasive to privacy. This Saturday at NAGA in Pennsylvania I asked one of them to stop recording my girlfriend and he ignored me, so I stood up in front of him to block his camera and continued coaching my girlfriend. He says to me “if you touch me I’ll sue you”. We told Kipp from naga and they were removed afterwards. So my question is Can legal action be taken against these goons who record women and pretty much exploit them for personal gain?
As aptly explained by one of the community members who understand law – public situations can be recorded as there is no expectation of privacy – there are no grounds to force someone to delete footage already recorded.
The website is attached to a youtube channel that features a variety of sexually suggestive images that really are just women’s division matches from various competitions.
A channel that once featured a number of videos published something quite curious yesterday:
The website attached to the channel was also hacked and features the same message
