Mom discovers home video listed among nude children
Kelli Clark of Katy posted a video on YouTube of her son when he was two-years-old as he wore a diaper and danced in the rain. She said she posted her video, intending for her family to see.
She said 50 hits rapidly turned into 3,000. That caught the eye of a YouTube viewer in Sweden who emailed Clark to let her know that her video was on a private YouTube channel that listed videos of nude children.
"I went to look. I was totally shocked," Clark said. "From then, I called the FBI and they couldn't do anything about it because they weren't his videos. They were other people's videos that he had collected."
Internet crime experts tell KPRC Local 2 that when you post your videos or pictures on the web, you basically give up the rights to those images. Experts say that is also true when someone reposts them under less-than-desirable conditions.
"Just be careful. You think that it's an innocent video. But other people aren't looking at it like that," Clark said.
Her video is now set to "private."
