Following on from the reports of a ban on Britney Spears' nude poster on the Tokyo Underground comes a change of heart.

Now, the demands that the adverts for Harpers Bazaar cover up the bits that you can't see anyway have been dropped:

"I'm glad the subway officials understood the meaning of the photo," said the magazine's deputy chief editor, Kayoko Higashino.

"Our earlier request to cover the photo from the waist down was because of nudity, not because we had anything against pregnant women," said Tokyo subway spokesman, Tatsuya Edakubo.

But if it's the waist down that was causing the problem, that wouldn't actually be the pregnant bit, would it?
