Are there Defenses Against Claims for Privacy Violation?

Chapter 3 of the Protection of Privacy Law, 5741-1981 lists eight defenses for a claim of a privacy violation in a civil or a criminal proceeding (See: “What Constitutes a Privacy Violation?”). The defenses include, for example, circumstances in which the defendant did not know and did not have to know, in good faith, that the privacy violation would occur, or where the violator committed the privacy violation, in good faith, to defend a legitimate interest of the violator.
