Last summer, before the official announcement of the anniversary flagship smartphone Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra, a video unpacking the device appeared on the Web. Later it turned out that the leak was made by a blogger who was one of the first to receive a smartphone for testing and signed a non-disclosure agreement.
Now the situation has finally cleared up: the blogger published an open letter in which he admitted that he had leaked and violated the confidentiality agreement concluded with Xiaomi.
According to the published information, the blogger must pay Xiaomi about $ 155,000, and the payment must be made within 30 days. The court also ruled that the blogger should make a public apology to Xiaomi, which he has already done.
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 be compensated. I agree with this decision and am ready to take on the responsibility. I would like to express my sincere sincere thanks to Xiaomi and Mr. Lei Jun, who have shown me great confidence, and apologize to them.
He clarified that the video was published not by him, but by his mother, who has access to his computer. The woman admitted that she inadvertently posted the video on the network, but at the same time she did not know about the existence of a non-disclosure agreement and that this is such important information.
