Highlights Highlights
Content Content
  <strong>New legislation in Saskatchewan, a Canadian province, will allow victims to directly sue perpetrators of "revenge porn," the process of sharing sexual images or videos of someone without their consent.</strong>
  The burden of proof, or providing evidence of the instance, will fall to the perpetrator under the legislation. The person accused of distributing images will have to provide evidence that they had consent to share the image.
  Plaintiffs will also have the option of bringing a case of revenge porn to more courts. Previously lawsuits filed under The Privacy Act were required to proceed only in the Court of Queen's Bench, the province's superior court. Cases can also be carried out in the Small Claims Court, giving victims more options on how to pursue a case.
