Japanese teenagers need to mind their digital manners

A new plague of "digital shoplifting" is evidently sweeping Japan.

Many young girls are taking camera phone picture of a new hairstyle or a new dress they might spot while browsing a magazine in a shop. They then send the picture to all their friends and comment on it. The publishers of those magazines feel they are being cheated out of valuable sales and have issued posters which warn shoppers to be careful of their "magazine manners".
