Ban on Intimate Pictures on Internet?

Publishing intimate pictures and videos on internet of people who have not consented to it could become illegal. According to the Christian Democrat deputy chair of the justice committee, Inger Davidsson, there is currently no proper legislation that can tackle the problem.

"In particular young girls are exposed to being filmed and photographed in intimate situations, and then it is spread via mobiles and on internet. And it is very hard to do something about today" Davidsson tells Swedish Television News.

The government would therefore like to bring it in under the current law against harassment or sexual harassment.
