Law Professor Discusses Legal Consequences of Uniqlo Sex Tape

After a sex-tape filmed in the dressing room of the Sanlitun Uniqlo sped like wildfire across the Chinese internet, many are wondering what the legal consequences may be for those involved.One law professor thinks that if the couple did not distribute the video, they should not bear any legal responsibility. If it was uploaded by a third party without the couples’ permission, that person would face charges for uploading sexually explicit material, violation of privacy and damaging reputations.Many netizens believe that the incident was a publicity stunt by Uniqlo, but the company has denied their accusations.”

    Who cares? People get freaky in strange places. Sometimes they film their exploits. No reason to act like its a big deal unless they are celebrities and one of them happens to be packing heat like a certain Motley Crue drummer; then its funny, but still not as interesting as they seem to be blowing this story up to be.

    • Bman

      True that.
      The story for me is how did it get uploaded? Would he or she? I doubt it.
      The puritanical ranting is a non story. We are all naked under our clothes; deal.

  • WghUk

    Who cares. I believe it’s a stunt too. After all the company is Japanese.

    • Jahar

      If this was a stunt, it clearly wouldn’t have been done by the Japanese management. It’s incredibly boring, the guy is some fat goofball dressed like a box of crayons, and the girl isn’t wearing anything other than pants around her knees. None of the clothes appear to be Uniqlo, and there’s nothing about the video that could be seen as advertising for the company.

      This shows how little you know about the Japanese. The Japanese are know worldwide for quality, and this video is far from it. The Chinese, on the other hand, are know for cheap, low quality imitations. The Japanese aren’t crude tasteless. That’s the Chinese. Chinese companies buy porn stars as prostitutes for their top performers, and advertise this kind of thing. Now if you said you think it’s a stunt by the Chinese management, I could definitely agree with that.

        “fat goofball dressed like a box of crayons” …That’s pure poetry there bro.

      • bujiebuke

        Thank you professor knucklehead for that insightful comparative analysis drawn on racial lines.

        • Jahar

          I just figured he set the boundaries, so it’s fair to play by his rules.

          • Bman

            Lol. It’s so obvious.
            What else could, ‘after all, the company is Japanese’ possibly mean?
            “Some people really hate all Japanese. To think that this video would be produced by Uniqlo as a porn promotion in China is ridiculous, and obvious slander. After all, the company is Japanese.”

          • bujiebuke

            Your logic:
            “He’s being a moron and therefore so can I”

      • Bman

        Promoted to professor before me. Dam you and your poetry!

      • WghUk

        You’re missing the point. Japanese don’t care about image and quality in China. Shows how little you know about China and i bet you’ve never been there. Only feeding on secondhand information from China bashing news sites. Japanese known for quality and taste? I don’t agree with you. Unless you’re into Japanese porn and its wierd cutesy culture or cars with exploding airbags. I’m not Chinese and I lived in the UK all my life in case you’re going to bash me on my background.

        • Jahar

          As someone who has lived their entire life in the UK, do you think you are the best person to be criticizing what you think I know as “second hand?” Seems you are hardly in a position to be doing that.

          i don’t give a flying fuck about your background. If you don’t think Japanese companies don’t care about their image in China, go into a Japanese shop here, then go into a Chinese shop here. If you know anything about Japanese culture, you will know how ridiculous that statement is

          I don’t care if you agree with me or not about the Japanese caring about quality and taste. All I can go by is what I’ve seen in the time I’ve spent there, what I’ve seen of Japanese work and products around the world. based on your initial statement you already have a pretty heavy bias against them, so it really doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. I’ve never met a person, or even heard of a person who thinks Japan is not known for quality. Until you, of course.

          • WghUk

            You sound angry, you must be a Japanophile and hence you’re here to China “Smack”! You are entitled to your opinion but for me Japanese DO NOT care about their image in China. I’ve met many Japanese during my time in China so you bet I am in the best position to judge!!!

          • Jahar

            No, I’m not angry, a Japanophile, or here to China “Smack.” For someone who tells me I shouldn’t be judging people, you seem quite keen on judging others yourself. If anything, you’re just as guilty, or even more guilty of Japan “Smack.”

            Edit: why do you assume that someone who likes Japan hates China?

            Your time in China? You just said you spent your whole life in the UK. You just said it.

            So you are in the best position to judge because you have met many Japanese people in China? That’s some iffy logic. Because your experience is more valid than that of the rest of the world?

          • WghUk

            Someone who likes Japan does not necessarily mean they hate China. But for someone who actively defends Japan and attacks China then to me that is strong enough evidence that they hate China. I don’t Japan Smack but I do Smack what deserves to be smacked including China.

            So for someone living in a country all for their lives means that they cannot go on holiday or work abroad briefly? Wonder where you’re from and what you do.

            Of course I can judge the Japanese in China. I heard and I saw. Japanese people deep inside really don’t see Chinese people as equals at all. After all if their forefathers didnt why should they? And back to the article, If that is a Japanese porn video stunt, I’m not surprised the slightest.

          • Jahar

            You said you thought I was a Japanophile, hence I hate China. Your making a logical connection between the 2.

            You meet a few Japanese people in China, and that give’s you the insight to see into the souls of the people of an entire nation? Yet you haven’t noticed that Chinese people feel that way about the Japanese? Or that Koreans feel this way too, about both? Feelings of Ethnic/national superiority is not new, not is it just limited to Japan.

            You already said what you think about it possibly being a publicity stunt. I’ve been in both countries enough to know that it’s not Japan’s style at all. Chinese maybe, but not Japanese.

        • Alex Dương

          So which car companies do you associate with high quality?

          • WghUk

            Seriously asking me this question? You don’t drive?

          • Alex Dương

            I’ve driven Japanese cars for 10 years with no issues. So yes, I am seriously asking you.

          • WghUk

            That is not a serious question! It’s like asking what other fruits other than green apples are green! I don’t need to tell you which country makes the best cars…do I have to?

          • Alex Dương

            Of course you don’t have to, but neither do I think your answer is obvious. For example, Germany isn’t obviously the answer. Neither is Italy. And of course you won’t say the U.S.; the “big three” had to be bailed out six years ago.

          • WghUk

            You are entitled to love your Japanese car, I don’t any problem with it. And I’m entitled to my own opinion as well. We are going way off topic so I won’t reply anymore especially as I’m starting my weekend now. Have a good weekend too.

          • Alex Dương

            And I’m entitled to my own opinion as well.

            Of course you are. I asked you for your opinion; I did not say your opinion was wrong. I don’t even know what it is, and you’ve consistently refused to answer. That’s your choice. Now I’m opinionated as anyone else, but I do not get people who think their opinions are so obviously true that anyone who questions them can’t be serious.
