A: If she is asking you for money or some other benefit to prevent her from showing it, she's likely committing a crime, and you can report her to law enforcement - IF you want this issue to become public record and IF having her arrested, possibly hauled off to jail, and prosecuted is desirable. If she is not demanding something from you but is showing or selling the video without your consent, that would likely be an invasion of privacy that would trigger a potential claim for money damages - and the issue would become public record in that case, too.
