The Standing Committee of Attorneys-General released a discussion paper in August 2005 entitled, ‘Unauthorised Photographs on the Internet and Ancillary Privacy Issues’ to raise awareness of the issues stemming from the widespread ownership and use of mobile phone cameras and small digital cameras, and the ability to disseminate photographs and film to a wider audience via the internet without the knowledge or consent of the person photographed or filmed. The current offences in the Criminal Code (Qld) are inadequate and a new voyeurism offence may be introduced soon.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
