No Private Pictures

CK - Washington.   The Diet in Berlin completed an intimacy amendment to the criminal code. The amendment will add §201a which criminalizes violations of privacy in one's home or in enclosures that offer an enhanced assurance of privacy, such as restrooms. The change is intended to protect the most intimate settings from invasion by photographers and does not contain an exception for the press. Currently, remedies for victims are limited to civil actions for damages and injunctions. German blog Handakte offers additional links.
