Someone secretly took video cameras into the locker room and showers of the Illinois State football team. Videotapes showing these undressed players were displayed at the website operated by Franco Productions. The Internet name concealed the name of the person responsible. The GTE Corporation, an ISP, provided a high- speed connection and storage space on its server so that the content of the website could be accessed. The nude images passed over GTE’s network between Franco Productions and its customers. The football players sued Franco Productions and GTE for monetary damages. Franco Productions defaulted when it could not be located. Is GTE Corporation liable for damages to the plaintiff football players? John Doe v. GTE Corporation, 347 F. 3d 655, 2003 U. S. App. Lexis 21345 (United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, 2003)
