The "friend" shouldn't have been snooping in the first place. I say wipe his flash drive, kick him to the curb, and put a password on anything you can to prevent anything like that from happening again. Maybe warn all of his friends of his antics.

So, OP deserves this because he didn't password protect his laptop? I'm sorry. The fact that something isn't password protected doesn't entitle anyone to go through it and copy personal files. He should have protected it; but his "best friend" shouldn't have gone through it to begin with.

OP doesn't deserve it, but knowing you have that sort of thing on your computer and you allow other people to freely use it, he should have been more responsible about making sure it was hidden very well or password protecting content like that. Plus, all it could take was one accidental mis-click for someone else to find it. However, the friend was an ass for trying to take the pictures for his own personal pleasure.

I'm confused as to where OP stated that he let his best friend use his computer with permission. His friend might have just went on it without OP's knowledge- and even with a password, he could have known the password or figured it out. Saying he deserves it is foolish. His best friend needs his ass whooped, end of story.

#23 Unfortunately I would. I KNOW my best friend would snoop around. It's the way she is. She snoops and wants to know everyone's business and also shares information with everyone regardless how personal it is. I simply learned not to trust her and not to tell her anything that I wouldn't put in a newspaper. Actually most people that I know can't keep a secret. Luckily fewer would snoop around trough my PC/phone.

Or password and lock his computer. I have a password on mine, and lock it whenever I am away from the keyboard. And when it is locked the only thing that displays is a password screen, and basically ignores all entries that are not related to the password. So the "friend" should have been respecting the posters privacy. But it is a YDI because by not locking your computer this ( or something like this ) would have happened sooner or later.

True, but that can't possibly excuse OP's friends completely dickish behavior. That's like saying that because you don't have one of those automated home security systems, I can walk inside and steal all your valuables. Nothing is an excuse for this kind of behavior.

and if OP didn't want them deleted? (we usually don't throw out possessions we Cherish or want or enjoy Simply because they MIGHT get stolen) but also didn't want to share.

Intellectual property is defined as "a work or invention that is the result of creativity, such as a manuscript or a design, to which one has rights and for which one may apply for a patent, copyright, trademark." Personal photos, even "jack off pictures" fall under this definition. So yes, it is stealing intellectual property, especially from the girlfriend, because they're photos of her. Everyone's personal photos are their own personal property that others need permission to use. Also, considering how pissed the OP is at his "best friend," I'm willing to bet he hasn't shown those pictures to him before, or anyone else, you know, like a good boyfriend.
