Revenge Porn Sex Tape Difficult to Remove from Web

Hicks tried to have the sex tape taken off the Internet, but authorities say once a video like that is posted in multiple places, it can be nearly impossible -- and very costly -- to take down.

"My mom didn't give up ... and I'm so proud of her, and I love her so much," Pamela Hicks said.
