Do you need to bear legal responsibility for selling these secretly filmed videos?
Not long ago, an urban reporter received a clue that someone was hawking private videos on the Internet. After months of investigation, the reporter broke into the black production chain of secretly filmed videos and learned the amazing inside story. In hotels, beauty salons, fitting rooms, even bathrooms, toilets and other places, pinhole cameras can be used to secretly take pictures everywhere, and a large number of private images of couples and women are clearly marked and sold.
What makes people shudder is that these sneak shots can be controlled remotely, and can be zoomed in and out by pushing, pulling, and panning. The number of these videos and the privacy of their exposure are shocking. The price of a video ranges from 20 yuan to several hundred yuan. Vendors said that according to the level of stimulation, they can also ask for “private customization” in advance. The reporter continued in-depth investigation and found that the areas of privacy infringed by the black production chain of secret photography are far more than these.
This question involves both legal and technical levels: If you ask whether you need to bear legal responsibility for trafficking in secretly filmed videos, whether from the civil perspective of infringement of privacy, or from the criminal perspective of spreading obscene materials for profit, the communicator must be legally responsible. . However, the law is obviously weak on the issue of human nature (seeing private desires). Even if the sentence is severe, people will always take risks. After all, the market is there. The huge underground black production and the real market magic should be defeated by magic. Sometimes I wonder if a technology or equipment can be invented to be used by new guests in private environments such as hotels, fitting rooms, changing rooms, and public toilets. Previously, as long as the device was used for scanning or testing, the camera or monitoring device installed in a dark place could be found immediately, thereby fundamentally eliminating the problem of sneak shots. Or take this inspection as a mandatory procedure in the service industry such as hotels and incorporate it into the integrity rules of the industry. Once the customer finds that it is not detected or the customer detects the camera device, he will be punished heavily! Don’t even argue that it may have been installed by previous customers or internal employees. Looking forward to the advancement of science and technology to that stage.
