CBC: Police officer in ‘revenge porn’ case sues over distribution of intimate images

April 26, 2018 — 

As CBC.ca reports

University of Manitoba law professor Karen Busby said it’s an interesting case and, to the best of her knowledge, is the first claim under the Manitoba law.

She said young people sharing intimate images with each other has become commonplace, but it also happens to adults too.

“I think in this day and age, it’s really hard to preach abstinence,” she said of the practice. “People are going to do this.” 

Those sharing sensitive images should be having conversations with their partners “about how the images will be used, what their expectations of privacy are, and what will happen to the images at the end of the relationship should it end, Busby said.

There should be a clear understanding that the images will be destroyed, she said.

“If they share these images, they could get into a lot of trouble.”
