Breaking news lads: if you like to take 'up skirt' pictures of women then you're an absolute weirdo and you need to reassess your life urgently.
However, after a bizarre ruling by the Georgia Court of Appeal, men won't be locked up where they belong if they take these creepy pics while the woman is walking around in public.
As reported by CBS, if 'up skirt' photos are taken behind closed doors, such as in a dressing room or bathroom stall it is illegal, but taking them while ladies are walking on the street will remain legal until at least spring 2017.
The decision was made with a 6-3 vote, with the opinion of the judges being that the wording of current privacy law in the state is flawed and lawmakers will first be required to amend it so 'up skirt' pictures can be made illegal.

Rightly, a number of people are outraged about the decision. Tanya Washington, a Georgia State University Law Professor, said: "You've given people license to continue this kind of behaviour until the next legislative session which is not until next year."
State Senator Vincent Fort was also outraged that action can't be taken again perverts immediately. He said: "So we're going to have six months or so where these creeps can run around doing this stuff."
In the meantime, women in the state will have to be vigilant for any sad acts with cameras. What a shit show.
