France:

France criminalizes the willful violation of the intimate private life of another by “transmitting the picture of a person who is within a private place, without the consent of the person concerned.”There’s a politician in the French government who is dedicated to the rights of women.

Australia:

The South Eastern Australian state of Victoria became the first in Australia to make revenge porn illegal by updating its existing laws. The new law will make it an offence to partake in ‘non-consensual sexting’, ie the deliberate sending of naked pictures of another person without that person’s consent.

 

Canada:

The Protecting Canadians from Online Crime Act (known as Bill C-13) was introduced in November 2013 to address criminal behaviour associated with cyberbullying. Now at the Report stage, the Bill creates the new offence of non-consensual distribution of intimate images, punishable by a maximum penalty of five years’ imprisonment on indictment or six months’ imprisonment on summary conviction.

 

Germany:

In May 2014, the German Higher Court of Koblenz ruled that ex-partners must delete explicit photographs taken of their former partners when the relationship ends. The woman in question had consented to all of the material being taken but demanded that all of the images and videos in which she appeared be deleted. The Court agreed, but held that her partner did not need to delete photographs of her fully clothed which had little, if any, capacity to compromise her.

 

Israel:

In January 2014, the Knesset criminalised the posting of sexually explicit media content without the depicted person’s knowledge or content. The offence covers content shared on social media and is punishable by up to five years in prison. It is the first country to prosecute as ‘sexual offenders’ those found guilty of posting such content.
