TeLENZ is pleased to present the seventh installment of its ‘Leading Minds’ webinar series on Law and Technology in legal education, practice, policy and research.

Legal practitioners, law teachers and legal researchers are invited to attend these presentations and participate in the Q&A sessions.

Webinar 7: Friday 19 March 2021, 11.00am – 12.00pm NZST.
Topic: Unauthorised Posting of Intimate Visual Recording
Attendance: Free but register here.

Posting a digital communication of an intimate visual recording online (also referred to as ‘revenge pornography’) is a form of sexual exploitation that involves the intentional, non-consensual disclosure of intimate visual recordings of another person who is either naked, exposed, or engaged in an intimate sexual activity.

The Parliamentary Member’s bill, Harmful Digital Communications (Unauthorised Posting of Intimate Visual Recording) Amendment Bill, makes it an offence for a person to post a digital communication of intimate visual recordings of another person. The bill is available from here.

TeLENZ Project Lead, Associate Professor Wayne Rumbles, will discuss the issues and this bill with a panel of speakers who comprise:

1. Louisa Wall, New Zealand Parliamentary Member, who introduced the bill that was drawn from the ballot on 2nd July 2020,

2. Martin Cocker, CEO of Netsafe, and

3. Paulette Benton-Greig, Lecturer, Te Piringa – Faculty of Law, University of Waikato.

The Leading Minds webinar series of presentations is an initiative from the TeLENZ Project which is supported by the New Zealand Law Foundation.
