Information

If you're anything like us, faced with a situation that is new and maybe more than a bit scary, you probably want to understand as much as possible just what that situation is. Maybe you don't want to talk to anyone yet. Or at all.

We've done our best here to put together some information about the legal landscape around the non-consensual sharing or publication of intimate images. Unfortunately, in a lot of respects, the legal landscape isn't particularly clear. So take this information for what it is: our attempt to answer a few frequently asked questions and summarise the law in an easy-to-understand format.

This isn't advice, though. Every situation is different, and applying the information to each unique situation takes... well, takes a lawyer most often. So please get in touch with us so that we can give you some advice. We want to help.
