Legality of adult chat as evidence
While stalking is defined differently in each state, it covers most forms of repeated harassment that are likely to harm or scare a person–including filming their private parts or activities without their knowledge.For example, in April 2013, a 20 year old guy in Queensland was charged with stalking and other crimes for using a mobile phone to film a teenager in a public toilet.For more information on indecency laws for your state and territory, check out your state’s page on sexting on Lawstuff.
Defamation happens when someone hurts another person’s reputation by spreading false or humiliating material about them.
Private activities normally include things like undressing, using the toilet, showering or bathing, or doing a sexual act in a place where a typical person would expect privacy.
The laws ban things like “upskirting” (snapping a photo up somebody’s skirt without their permission) and setting up cameras in changing rooms or bedrooms.
This includes homes, shops, sport and performance venues, museums and galleries, schools and similar places.
These places can make rules that ban people from photographing or recording any part of the space or the people within it (unless they can be seen from a public space).
