The issue is becoming more and more important. There are already two criminal cases in Argentina from 2015. The fact-scenario of both cases was  defendant posting without authorization videos of intimate images of ex girlfriend. Both cases were considered under the criminal felony of extortion because respondent requested a payment to stop publishing. But there are cases were no payment was requested and there is a gap in the criminal code, unless the judge considers the image personal data and the website a database and decides to apply section 157 bis of the Criminal Code (a provision inserted by the Data Protection Act intro the criminal code).

I have authored two law review articles about this matter and a working paper for our Internet Law program in the University of San Andres.
