6 Months Suspended Sentence for Google
The BBC reported today that :
An Italian court has convicted three Google executives in a trial over a video showing a teenager with Down’s Syndrome being bullied.
Is it just me or is the screws of justice actually starting to turn, I know Google will appeal against this and David Drummond, chief legal officer at Google quoted that :
“I intend to vigorously appeal this dangerous ruling. It sets a chilling precedent,” he said.
“If individuals like myself and my Google colleagues who had nothing to do with the harassing incident, its filming or its uploading onto Google Video can be held criminally liable solely by virtue of our position at Google, every employee of any internet hosting service faces similar liability,” he added.
Personally I believe that Google need to start taking account of their actions. Last Monday on my radio show Strikepoint I kind of went on a large scale rant after Google again sent my children to places I don’t want them to go, which made me want to block Google from my home :
Seriously “best toys” is something my kids do search and I don’t want, or like the fact that Google is pushing them to Sex Toys..I have no reason for even letting them sign up for Gmail.
