Megumi Igarashi 3

I wasn't expecting the saga of a vulva-shaped kayak by Japanese artist Megumi Igarashi to feature on Christmas Day, but the latest news from Tokyo is that prosecutors have indicted her on three charges of distributing "obscene" data. (CLICK for my earlier posts on this saga.) Specifically the charges relate to CD-ROMs containing computer code for a 3D printer that would allow users to make copies of the vulva-shaped kayak. If convicted, Megumi faces up to two years in prison and/or a fine of 2.5 million yen (CLICK).
