The ruling on the Google Italy case is in, with Google employees being convicted. I can’t put it simpler than to say: outrageous, outrageous, outrageous!
Google should have been protected by the Ecommerce Directive as a host of the video and that should have been the end of it. The matter should never have come to court on privacy grounds.
Google absolutely did the right thing and acted properly in removing the video as soon as it knew about it.
Thanks for your fashion sense Italy … but seriously, what’s going on? Let’s not trash a whole business model eh!
