It happened in August last year, when Xiaomi presented the flagship Mi 10 family. On the eve of the presentation, an insider, violating the embargo, published a video of the unboxing of the device.
It is reported that it was not even the blogger himself who was responsible for the leak, but his mother. The son allegedly left a computer with information turned on at home, and his mother accidentally posted a video in one of the groups. After a while, the video was deleted, but they managed to download it and take screenshots.
The blogger now has to pay a 1 million yuan ($ 155,000) fine and apologize for violating the confidentiality agreement. By the way, he has already sent a letter of apology to Xiaomi. It says:
“This case was reviewed by the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission, and it was found that my actions violated the confidentiality agreement and led to serious consequences. Xiaomi should receive reasonable compensation. As a result, I am ready to take on the responsibility. At the same time, due to the damage that my breach of contract has caused Xiaomi, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Xiaomi, Mr. Lei Jun and the Xiaomi staff who have shown me a lot of trust, and to all Mi fans. I’m sorry, I’m sorry “
