Tokyo courts, bah!
Topic: Media
Last week, the Tokyo District Court ordered a publisher not to distribute the magazine with an article about the divorce of the daughter of former prime minister Tanaka. The Court called it an "invasion of privacy." However, 740,000 of the 770,000 copies printed had sold like hotcakes. Now the Yahoo eBay price is 2,000yen per copy about $18!
Tokyo court bans weekly's publication over Tanaka's daughter
Kyodo / Wednesday March 17, 12:30 AM

The Tokyo District Court has issued a temporary injunction banning the publication of Shukan Bunshun weekly magazine which had planned to run in its latest issue a story about the eldest daughter of House of Representatives member Makiko Tanaka, the daughter's lawyer said Tuesday....
In its March 25 issue to be published Wednesday, the popular weekly, published by the Tokyo-based Bungei Shunju Ltd., planned to run what it calls an "exclusive scoop" on Tanaka's eldest daughter.
According to her lawyer, the story says that the daughter got married despite her parents' fierce opposition and divorced after only one year and returned from Los Angeles....
Her parents are Tanaka and her husband Naoki. Tanaka, the daughter of the late Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka, is widely known as an outspoken politician and has served as foreign minister.

Notice how this story fails to name the "daughter" who is the secret love-child of Makiko-chan and Taro. Maybe she doesn't have a name.
