Did Someone Break the Law by Leaking the Solange-Jay Z-Beyoncé Elevator Tape?

A video of Solange attacking her brother-in-law, Jay Z, in an elevator at The Standard Hotel in New York surfaced this week, breaking the Internet and sending social media into a mass craze of guessing #WhatJayZSaidToSolange. The video was presumably leaked by a security guard monitoring the cameras at The Standard, or by some other hotel staff member with access to the area in which the monitors were kept. Who holds legal responsibility for the leak, and what laws, if any, were actually broken by the public distribution of the tape? In the leaked video, you can clearly see that the elevator camera is one of at least four security feeds being monitored. This means that rather than actually stealing the tape itself, or downloading just the stream from the elevator camera onto a separate device, someone filmed the monitors using their own device.
