Non-Consensual Reality

2009-09-10 18:34:52.906614+00 by petronius 1 comments

Turkish police have raided a villa outside Istanbul where several women believed they were participating in a Big Brother-type reality show. Scantily-clad images of them were sold to cell-phone subscribers. There seems to be some question of whether the women were held against their will or not. And if the promoters were actually selling the "big-brother-type" experience, was their claim of running a reality show actually true? While this might make an intriguing argument in a US court, I suspect the Turks will take harsher view.
