A lawyer in Xian, China, filed a lawsuit in September against a movie house and film distributor for wasting her time because she was exposed to 20 minutes of advertisements.

A lawyer in Xian, China, filed a lawsuit in September against a movie house and film distributor for wasting her time because she was exposed to 20 minutes of advertisements that began at the posted time for the actual movie to begin. Ms. Chen Xiaomei is requesting a refund (equivalent of about $5.20) plus damages of an equal amount, plus the equivalent of about 15 cents for "emotional" damages plus an apology.

In an April journal article, University of East Anglia professor Brett Mills denounced the 2009 British TV documentary series "Nature's Great Events" on the ground that the program's omnipresent and intrusive video cameras violated animals' privacy. "(The animals) often do engage in forms of behavior which suggest they'd rather not encounter humans," he wrote, "and we might want to think about equating this with a desire for privacy."
