Police said Friday that Bajaj was arrested under the 2000 IT Act that declares "publishing, transmitting, or causing to publish any information in electronic form, which is obscene" as a criminal offense.

Kittens everywhere flock to India.

Anybody got a link to the video?

/ I KID!

So, lemme get this straight: eBay's Bajaj, boss of Baazee, was busted by a bartered BJ?

Is that it?

Wait wait! I got it. You submitted this with a funnier headline, right? Right?
 
2004-12-20 05:39:35 PM  
Far be it from me to complain, directly.

At least you now know that having friends in Ultra-high places does not improve greenlighting probabilities. I guess it's just the way it has to be.

I submitted this with a "guess the backward country" headline yesterday.

/Got my facts wrong, though. Stupid Indian article didn't explain that the CEO was from eBay, made it sound like he worked for the Cell Phone company, or some MMS service provider.

Looks like we've outsourced moral outrage now.

They've arrested the CEO for teh pr0n, maybe they will keep him for all the fake watches and designer goods.

OH OH, let me guess.....


"Kingosalami" was the name, right?

Deputy Commissioner of Police heading the investigation, Prabhakar, who uses only one name, declined to comment on Sunday.

Your name would have to be realy cool and unique for you to only need one. I want a cool and unique single name. I'm thinking Blackleaf. Maybe Elfstar.

How to perform Indian Movie Show-Stoppin' Musical Dance Number:

1. Solo is OK, but a large group, preferably in some sort of whacky formation, is preferred. Arrange group as desired.

2. All participants face in same direction and SMILE~!

3. Raise arms in air on either side of head, keeping elbows bent approximately 90 degrees.

4. Turn palms upwards and grasp slightly as if holding a lightbulb!

5. Start the music and SCREW IN THOSE LIGHTBULBS~!

Lightbulb-screwing-in fun!

Moral of the story: Don't try to help the police. They'll only arrest you.

I never heard of Baazee before. Sounds cool.

So does this mean that all the Indian IT guys getting jobs at the expense of outsourced Americans could be criminally liable for something completely and totally out of their control?

Wow, talk about KARMA!

This is deplorable. What in the hell is that judge thinking? Someone needs to go over there and give everyone responsible for this a big kick in the patoot.

Indian asshat tries to sell homemade teen porn video on Ebay.

Has anyone bothered to consider that the real asshats here is the Indian government? Why the fark are they jailing people for making porn, homemade or otherwise?

Looks like the quality of the people in law enforcement is more or less a constant.

Kaymon: Um...the listing was pulled after they became aware of it and it did not include the video clip itself. Of course it should have been pulled but given the above, how can you hold the CEO responsible?

selling porn is illrgal in India.
(although watching or owing one is not)
Therefore he is an ASSHAT. aight?

P.S. the legal age is only 16 over there anyway
 
2004-12-20 09:37:44 PM  
so.. has this hit kazza yet or what?
 
2004-12-20 09:39:57 PM  
I'm surprised that no one asked the obvious. My guess is that camera phones dont record video for longer that 15 minutes and the quality sucks ass.
If you're gonna arrest a bunch of people and turn this into an international incident at least let it be some good quality porn.

Are you also being forced to marry the richer friend of the girl you really want to marry? Cause man that sucks. If you are a female, then are you the poorer girl, etc.?

Cell phones in US sucks. They sell cheap outdated crap here, and still manages to make you feel proud that you own a cheap ass cell phone. duh

What a fiasco. This is why I'd never do business in a foreign country. Now eBay has to spend time and money defending this guy in a country where the legal system is about as reliable as the potability of the drinking water.

selling porn is illrgal in India.


No, India invented porn. Kama sutra is a religious
text and Kama is a GOD in the Aryan religion (Hinduism).
Kama literally means fark by the way. Soma is also a
religious concept and means liquor.

Porn is legal. DISTRIBUTION OF UNDERAGE porn made
by schoolchildren (as in this case) is illegal.

irinotecan,

Bollywood movies don't (or didn't) allow women to wear bathing suits on camera. Porn would probably be a big no at least legally. So most Bollywood movies have one scene where women dance in the rain.
