Abstract

On March 1, 2010, Woman's Day magazine published a nude picture of a well known celebrity which was allegedly taken during an affair with an Australian football player.

The day after publication, her publicist announced she would take legal action for:

1) breach of privacy;

2) defamation;

3) misuse of her image.

This article discusses the state of the Australian law to litigate for sext-ing abuses against a famous person.

Keywords: defamation, celebrity, sext-ing
