This paper consists of an investigation into the treatment of non-consensual dissemination of intimate images - NCII (better known as 'revenge porn'). By attempting to answer the question 'how does the regulation/treatment of unauthorized dissemination of intimate content occur in different countries?', differences and similarities in the treatment of this issue were mapped in twenty-seven countries, including Brazil, and how their institutions face and respond to it. The sources used to address those points were legal official documents (statues, codes, law bills, judicial decisions, reports by governmental entities), academic articles, consultation to international organizations and international media articles. The method was developed from the functional and law-in-context methods according to Hoecke's (2015) classification for comparative law work. The analysis of the results indicates a predominant tendency of criminalization as a primary response for this issue, and in this article, in addition to presenting such results, we highlight some solutions that differ from this tendency and contemplate public policy in a more broader sense. The systematization of responses (that are often sparse) and their critical discussion is essential to face this problem, considering its complexity from both the point of view of gender relations and the guarantee of digital rights. © 2017 Centro Universitario de Brasilia.
