Finnish teen fined for YouTube video of teacher

 A 15-year-old student in Finland has been fined for posting a YouTube
video "showing a karaoke performance of his teacher and for claiming
she was a lunatic," the Associated Press reports.
The video depicts his teacher singing karaoke at a party. The student
said that he did it as a prank "and had not intended to insult the
teacher." The video said the teacher was "a lunatic singing at the
karaoke of the mental hospital." As a good a warning as any that there
can be consequences from posting defaming photos and video, prank or
not. It's always good to ask permission before uploading images of
others. In Finland, as in most other countries, there can be legal
consequences.
