In September 2010, a Chinese woman lawyer issued a law suit against a cinema and a film distribution company for showing 20 minutes of advertisements before the main feature.
She says the company and the cinema should have told her how long the adverts would last and accused them of of wasting her time and violating her freedom of choice.
Chen Xiaomei demanded a refund of the money she spent on the ticket, an equal amount in compensation, a nominal amount for emotional damages and that they write her an apology.
