Recently, a woman surnamed Wu said that she found that her private photos from her social platforms were being used by WeChat shop owners on their WeChat Moments. She suspected that her photos might have been sold secretly. Recently, many private selfies have been sold in packages by sellers online. Some sellers claimed that they downloaded them without getting the approval of the photos' owners. Lawyers said that selling photos without permission infringes on the rights to a portrait.

In addition, some of them have serious problems completing their cleaning jobs.

300,000 - the amount of money in yuan that a 95-year-old man surnamed Wang finally got from the bank. Wang's wife passed away two years ago and left their savings of 300,000 yuan in the bank. Since Wang input the password wrong three times in a row, the bank card was locked. The bank then asked Wang to prove that he was the inheritor of the money. Wang sued the bank. Wang had no children of his own. The case was accepted by Chaoyang District People's Court recently, and they approved Wang's appeal.
