A court in Brazil has just ordered the shut down of Google’s YouTube for failing to remove a celebrity sex video from the site.
Daniela Cicarelli, a model and ex-wife of soccer great Ronaldo, sued YouTube after a video of her apparently having sex in shallow water on a beach with her boyfriend was posted to the site.
While Google may not have to obey the ruling – as they are a U.S. based company - the search engine has already shown they’ll bend to the ruling of foreign courts, so it will be interesting to see how they handle this one.
Meanwhile, Cicarelli may wish to either…
a. think twice about having sex in public
b. speak to Paris Hilton and hear how a leaked sex video can re-ignite a career
