Publisher, retailer sued over textbook
    2017-August-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A COLLEGE student who sued a publisher and an online retailer for vilifying homosexuality in a textbook confirmed with the Global Times on Tuesday that the case has been brought to court under the name of a “product quality dispute.”

The people’s court in Suyu District, East China’s Jiangsu Province, on July 17 accepted the appeal of Xi Xi (pseudonym), a student in Guangzhou, South China’s Guangdong Province, who sued Jinan University Press and JD.com on July 6 over a book that described homosexuality as a “sexual disorder or choosing the wrong sexual partner.”

Xi Xi sued the publisher and the seller under the name of “product quality” since “there are clear mistakes and misleading content in this book,” she said, adding that JD.com is involved because they sold the book.

The book was still on sale on JD.com as of press time.

This is the first time a lawsuit has been filed over vilifying homosexuality in textbooks under the name of “product quality,” Xi Xi said.

The book is a textbook in Jinan University and is circulating in 18 universities in eight cities right now, Xi Xi said.

She said she decided on the legal route after trying to contact the university and the author several times with no response. (SD-Agencies)

Jinan University Press told the Global Times on Tuesday that they also planned to resort to legal action to deal with the case but refused to reveal further information.

JD.com gave no comment when reached by the Global Times on Tuesday.
