CBS News: Watching Erin Andrews Video is Crime

Wednesday, July 22, 2009 , Posted by Christopher Byrne at 8:26 PM, under ,

From CBS News we learn that anyone who watches or downloads a copy of the Erin Andrews video(s) is committing a crime.

"The Early Show" spoke with CBS News Legal Analyst Lisa Bloom, who said downloading or watching the nude Erin Andrews video is illegal.

"Its like buying or selling stolen property," said Bloom. "If you know you are buying something that was stolen... you could be liable criminally and civilly."

Of course, that does not mean that CBS News isn't trying to cash in on the notoriety. They have an 11 picture photo album linked to from the article, using enticing, "lurid" language to get visitors to click on a link that has nothing to do with the scandal:
