I'll be posting a legal analysis of the Terms of Service of some of these websites soon. In the meantime, this Scribd document contains a treasure trove of information about one of these sites, arrest.org. An Investigation Of arrests.org Of real interest in the document is that mugshots don't actually appear to be removed from the site. Rather, the site is updating the robots.txt file to de-index pictures from Google search. Whether that is consistent with what they and the companies that offer to remove the images represent is an open question. Here is the interesting thread from ScamInformer that led me to that document.
