It appears that Dashawn Webster, 22, may have been more concerned with complying with copyright laws than the criminal code. Webster is accused of adding a “copyright” to images of him allegedly molesting a 2-year-old boy. The Portsmouth, Virginia man also allegedly added his own name to the movie.
Police simply traced the screen name and found Webster. They ultimately seized a thumb drive with 15 images of child pornography that were watermarked with a copyright symbol. Webster’s assistance did not end there. He reportedly admitted to producing the child porn and said the child was only 2 years old.
Webster can now rest assured that his copyright claims are duly noted.
