A Chinese couple have sued their former high school after it broadcast a video of them kissing on campus as an example of "irregular action".
Attitudes to authority are changing
Wei Gang and his unnamed girlfriend have demanded compensation of 5,000
yuan ($600) and a public apology for "mental anguish" caused by the screening, which they said was an invasion of their privacy.
Although the video tried to cover up the couple's faces, fellow students recognised them by their dress, the Shanghai Daily reported.
"Since then, we were often mocked by other students," the paper
quoted Wei as saying.
The school authorities showed the video as an example of what they called irregular behaviour among students, saying it was a legitimate form of moral education.
"We just want to show that irregular actions exist on campus,"
said Tao Xinliang, a lawyer representing the school.
The couple graduated from the school last year.
