J.Hazelbaker :

Hello. Thank you for using JustAnswer.

J.Hazelbaker :

You may have a legal claim against the person for invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

J.Hazelbaker :

It's a hard claim to prove however.

J.Hazelbaker :

You need to be able to prove that you had a "reasonable expectation" that the video would be kept private.

J.Hazelbaker :

For the emotional distress claim, you also need to show that the emotional distress was so severe that it had physical manifestations (e.g. you became physically ill).
