RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Much is made of "accidental viewing". Accidental viewing is understandable if the link's title is innocuous or non-specific. The test for those convicted but claiming accidental viewing (one of the cited cases involving a teacher I think claims this) should be the answer to this question...If the site clearly stated that 'accessing this site is a violation of federal and state law'... would they have proceeded?. If "Yes", it is certainly not accidental viewing. But without such a warning, sites with links like "ShockingVideo" is a door to the unknown. If this title turned out to be illegal porn, it could be a genuine argument of accidental viewing for which there should be some legal relief in the law.
