In Joe Francis' Defense

As a matter of principle, isn't it a little disingenuous to complain about Girls Gone Wild and then mock Joe Francis because he doesn't want his private recordings being shown in public? The Girls Gone Wild participants are performing for the camera; admittedly the whole bit about getting them to sign consent forms when they're drunk is an issue, but in the least you can argue they have a diminished expectation of privacy. Whereas, as far as I can tell, Mr. Francis' expectation of privacy remains undimished, since the tapes were created in private and never intended for public consumption.

Even if he is a scumbag he still has rights. The willingness to ignore those rights on account of his business ventures reflects poor reasoning at best.
