Listen: Disney, Shanghai Disney, China discussed on World News Analysis
"Of today amodeo today joining me in our studio our hobbies odin sinner fellow for the think tank center surfaced china and globalization and come into their mailing now. Let's go to shanghai so a chinese law. Student has sued shanghai disney snee- resort over its ban on visitors bring their own food. The students says she carried some snacks when she was entering. Her bag was checked by the gate stuff who then prevented her from entering the parks rules states that visitors cannot bring food alcoholic beverages or nan alcoholic drinks whose volume is about six hundred milliliters. The park responded by saying regarding earning the ban on outside food and beverages shanghai. Disney resort is consistent with most theme parks in china as well as other disney parks in asia if they bring their own food and beverages they may enjoy them in the rest area outside the park. The student believes the rules had infringed changed on her rights. She decided to sue the resort so far. The court says the case had his hearing but no verdict has been passed it first first of all is it legal photo theme park to ben on all sides snacks and beverages. Well you know every jurisdiction has its own laws but looking looking at this from a point of view of what's equitable what's right. I believe that the students case is <hes> definitely salihi. <hes> mickey mouse means stupid and i think that it's a case of sour grapes because of the fact disney has the right to who set the parameters for people coming into its property and this is not an onerous requirement if it's made known in advance advance because there are options outside. Is it the fairest policy for guests no but does disney have a right it to do it yes because they need to have <hes> their property <hes> controlled. There may be reasons that bringing in food from the outside may cause the properties to be more dirty or to have other problems. It's not that big the deal is it fair that <hes> disney <hes> my charge more money for food inside than outside young yeah. It's not so fair i don't think but is it any different from somebody going to a train station in china and buying something in the train station where the prices are double or or much more than just outside. I i don't see any difference. Oh i see this as a law student trying to you test her legal skills good. It's a very professional very good practice actually l. I agree with you. I echo with you. <hes> first of all i said i should say that that she has the right to sue she has the right to sue and if we dig into a certain set of fun legislature chinese legislature we have a <hes> consumers rights protection law. If we dig into them we will find some you know something to back her up to say hey. It's you know disney is illegal but these articles are not very specifically written so i want really our law to really to go into into the details and the specif- specify which exact sort of illegal so under the circumstances i if it's not specifically defined and in law then it's the gray area so disney what disney is doing is can do and cannot do so. It's a great area and then add to what harvey v said.."
