Section 267. Violation of privacy

Any person who by public communication violates the privacy of another person shall be subject to a fine or imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year.
The penalty pursuant to the first paragraph does not apply to a person who has participated only through technical assistance or distribution of a magazine or periodical produced within the realm. The same applies to broadcasts.
The penalty pursuant to the first paragraph may be waived if the communication was provoked by the aggrieved person himself/herself through improper conduct, or if the communication has been met with retaliation through a violation of privacy or a physical assault.
