    in other words – would such a gif or video be allowed to exist in places such as Youtube, EDF or any other website that would normally allow non epilepsy inducing content to be shared? What about on Telivision?
    If you know of such a gif or video would you like to share it with me?

    No. You'd be fine making it.

    However if you wore a 32 inch LED screen on your chest and walked around with the offending gif and went to Epileptics and said HEY CHECK IT OUT you'd probably get in trouble (and be the troll mastar)

    People who are epileptic shouldn't even be staring at a screen anyways, so I think you're good.

    Then again I don't know jack shit about seizures.

    With that said, rape rape rape rape rape rape rape rape rape

    Depends. It's only illegal if there was evidence that your intention was to trigger epilepsy. Like this thread for example.

    Sounds like intention would matter -- if you made it b/c you yourself were epileptic and wanted an awesome jerk-off I suppose you'd probably OK legally. though you might wake up with your dick cum-pasted to your belly -- band-aide tear off time
