Israeli law makes revenge porn a sex crime | The Times of Israel

“A new law drafted by MK Yifat Kariv (Yesh Atid) targeting revenge porn was approved by the Knesset plenum on Monday and will prevent the distribution of some pornographic content over the Internet.

The law, which targets sexually explicit media posted without the depicted person’s knowledge or consent, also covers content shared on social media.

The crime will henceforth be punishable by up to five years in prison.”
