Don Park describes a witch a daily situation of bad behavior. This time, 
someone unpacks the camera, makes photos and publishes them on his 
blog. A witch-hunt is started with disastrous consequences for the life 
of a young women who behaved in a wrong way:


The question for me is: What is the policy - response to such a hunt? 
How could we prevent this? The issue at hand is obviously that the 
sanction of the society is completely disproportional to the initial 

It is clear that in many western countries, one's right to publicity or 
one's right on one's own picture would give a handle. But the handle is

this impact stories like this one?

All in all, it is an interesting story that I wanted to share with you.
