Έγραψε F***book και εθίστηκε στο πορνό

Earlier this week, I wrote about a lawyer in Florida suing Apple for millions because he couldn't be bothered to figure out how iTunes works. Little did I know that this wasn't the craziest law suit brought by a lawyer against Apple.  A tipster pointed us to a 50-page complaint filed in federal court last month seeking damages and injunctive relief against Apple for making devices that can display porn, or as the rest of us call it, the Internet. The complaint gracefully skips from pop psychology, to comparing porn to handguns, to appeals to the divine rule of the Almighty.  This wasn't the best week for Apple in the courtroom, but at least the in-house lawyers have this suit to look forward to defending¿  The plaintiff, Chris Sevier, is an attorney in Nashville. A news report of his arrest last month on unrelated charges of stalking country music star John Rich (the guy whose obnoxious song mars my weekly viewing of College GameDay) states that Sevier's 36, though his Model Mayhem bio says he's 26. For someone mad about porn on the Internet, he's already adopted its first cardinal rule: models always lie about their age.  Sevier's complaint makes a simple request: Apple should sell all products with an installed filter blocking all Internet porn. If the buyer, over the age of 18, wishes to unlock the Internet, he or she is free to contact Apple, sign a form acknowledging the ills of pornography, and receive a code to remove the filter. Sevier argues that the burden must be shifted from parents to the manufacturer to sell a locked device. That sounds like a fair enough, even laudable goal. But Sevier also wants these filters installed lest the responsibility be up to *shudder* individuals exercising self-control.  The complaint describes some of the societal harm porn causes, such as "lead[ing] to American girls traveling abroad to be abducted and cast into sex trafficking." Someone was watching Taken while drafting this complaint. But Sevier has also suffered personal harm:

Αγωγή 36 σελίδων κατά της Apple από έναν δικηγόρο στις ΗΠΑ. Πώς από ένα ορθογραφικό λάθος, οδήγησε το γάμο του σε αποτυχία

Να κάνει αγωγή στην Apple αποφάσισε ένας 36χρονος δικηγόρος, κατηγορώντας την ότι κατέστρεψε το γάμο του!                            

Αιτία ήταν  ένα μικρό ορθογραφικό λάθος κατά τη διάρκεια πληκτρολόγησης μιας λέξης στο Safari, η οποία -όπως ισχυρίζεται- τον ανάγκασε να εθιστεί στο πορνό.

Ο λόγος για τον Chris Sevier, ο οποίος, μέσω μιας 36σελιδης  αγωγής προς το ανώτατο δικαστήριο του Τενεσί, υποστηρίζει ότι εθίστηκε στο πορνό, επειδή ο διάσημος web browser της εταιρείας δεν έχει εγκαταστήσει κάποιο φίλτρο για την αποφυγή ιστοσελίδων με πορνό.

Ο 36χρονος λοιπόν εθίστηκε στο σεξ, όταν αντί για facebook κατά λάθος έγραψε f*** book, με αποτέλεσμα να δει στην οθόνη του πορνογραφικό υλικό.

"Ο ενάγων είναι θύμα των προϊόντων της Apple. Πωλήθηκε σε αυτόν προϊόν της εταιρίας χωρίς καμία προειδοποίηση των ζημιών που προκαλεί η πορνογραφία" αναφέρει μεταξύ άλλων η αγωγή, που κατέθεσε.

"Κατά τη χρήση του Safari, ο ενάγων έκανε ένα ορθογραφικό λάθος και αντί για " facebook.com "' έγραψε  f *** book.com. Αυτό είχε ως αποτέλεσμα να δει  μια σειρά από ιστοσελίδες οι οποίες περιείχαν πορνογραφικές εικόνες".

Ο 36χρονος δικηγόρος ο οποίος υπηρέτησε στο παρελθόν στις ειδικές δυνάμεις τονίζει ότι αυτό είχε ως αποτέλεσμα την αποτυχία του γάμου του καθώς ο εθισμός του με την πορνογραφία τον ανάγκασε να βλέπει ερωτικές ταινίες με γυναίκες πιο ελκυστικές από τη σύζυγό του.
