Suppose student X fails in Professor A’s class. X takes professor A’s picture from the university website and then puts up posters around campus with the picture along with offensive comments. He refers to the individual as a professor but doesn’t disclose his name, class, or any other personal information. As a result, Professor A experiences severe depression and is admitted to a hospital. What are X’s liabilities?
I understand that there is a case of defamation here. What I’m not sure is whether there is also a data privacy case in this particular scenario.
