Revenge Porn, Tort Law and the Protection of Privacy in Canada, part II
Release Date: 05/25/2016
This is the second of a two-part podcast on revenge porn, tort law and privacy. Does Ontario's tort of public disclosure of private facts, recently recognised in Doe 464533 v ND, extend to content-hosting websites or anonymous users? How much should victims of revenge porn be compensated? What is the role of tort law in protecting fundamental freedoms, particularly as they relate to women’s rights?
We spoke with internet lawyer Allen Mendelsohn, civil liberties expert Cara Zwibel and comparative legal scholar Giorgio Resta to tackle this complex issue.
