The article reviews current privacy laws in the context of “Revenge Porn”. Given the speed at which images are published online, the article highlights the futility of breach of confidence and other civil actions in preventing publication at the outset. Furthermore, private law is expensive offering little protection against the victim’s humiliation. The article proposes that non-consensual pornography should be criminalised under the Coroners and Justice Act 2009 by way of a Statutory Instrument: Misuse of Private Information 2014.
