Shu Qi Awarded $130,000 for Illegal Publication of Old Nude Photos
Last year, the Liberty Times published an article claiming that Shu Qi did not wear underwear briefs at a promotional event in Shanghai . The article also included photos from Shu Qi’s nude pictorial book released fifteen years ago. Shu Qi sued the Liberty Times for infringement, claiming $2 million NT dollars (approximately $420,000 Yuan) and an apology for the illegal publication of her old nude photos.
Shu Qi’s case against the Liberty Times was presented before the Taiwanese district court on August 24th. Shu Qi was awarded $600,000 NT (approximately $130,000 Yuan). The judge noted that the nude photos from fifteen years ago were published without Shu Qi’s consent. Her current career was also a notable departure from her early Category III movies. The judge ruled that the circulation of her old photos would have an impact on her current career.
