Google/YouTube Execs Convicted in Italy on Privacy Violations

Many of you will have seen the news that an Italian court has convicted three Google executives with respect to postings of a video by users of the YouTube service showing the bullying of a handicapped child.  Despite the fact that Google employees acted quickly to remove the video, three company officers were convicted in an Italian court for the privacy violations of the subject of the video under Italian privacy law.  Google will appeal the convictions.

  1. Wow…the sentence they’ve received is just too extreme for the situation. It would warrant a public announcement/apology of some sort…but jail time?
