A media data breach compensation claim could arise where a person’s information has been misused or exposed in a media setting without clear and proper consent. There are public interest arguments where people could be featured in the media generally, such as on TV or in publications, but this does not necessarily constitute a breach. It can come down to the context of what has happened and what information is affected, and whether such data could – and should – have been protected from disclosure.
