I Still don't understand how there can be so much BS in this world.

You have to be an idiot to agree with these convictions.

This is an insane judgement that will get thrown out sooner or later.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if every internet provider, ISP etc all decided to switch themselves off until this was all sorted out. Think of it, no google, no banking, no government agencies, nothing. Money and SLAs mean it will never happen of course, but I for one would laugh.

All the companies that have any social networking sites should just boycott Italy until this is sorted out.

Why does the prosecution argue that they failed to comply with privacy laws? Any word on the actual arguments used?

Any idea which technicality of the privacy law was used to prosecute them?

I can't believe a jury would come to any such conclusion when considering all the implications.

I'd love to see google and all major content hosting companies shut Italy out until this is sorted.

This was a moronic decision. If I was an of those employees, I would be glad I worked at Google for this, because I would imagine Google will throw some serious legal weight behind these guys. It is both upsetting on the basis of just this case, but is also a terrible precedent. Lets hope clearer heads prevail in an appeal.

I'm guessing the decision was made by a judge who thinks the Ipad is something that women use monthly...

I think Google should just pull out of Italy the same way it did in Chin.... Hold on, never mind, Google made an empty threat to China and hasn't followed through yet. Hopefully they'll back their employees in Italy better.

i have always held the belief that companies, like individuals, should be able to act in a bigoted, self destructive manner and the consumer should be the one to decide whether or not to do business with them. many companies set stupid precedent in their business dealings, and they either learn for their mistakes, loose gobs of cash or go under. governments do not have that luxury. when a government sets stupid precedent it must be fought tooth and nail, least we loose even more of our freedom to power hungry "leaders." i applaud google for not taking this one laying down, and wish them the best of luck. the EU needs to be taken down a few notches (not saying that any other country is better, we are all heading away from freedom as a treasured value)

Actually they did follow through. They stopped censoring their searches.

I think it would be unlikely that Google would pull out of Italy. Simply put, they would make more money from operating in Italy than they would spend on taking their legal challenge all the way to the European courts. What could be interesting is if they pulled out for a week as a protest, the taste of disruption that would be caused when all Google services are withdrawn just for a week would send a big message. Of course if they did that there would be the inevitable cries of Google being too powerfull and exploiting their position but it would still be a big message to send.

It is insane, this could have easily been kept out of the courts, and sorted out with a slap on the wrist, no person(s) was hurt by this.

I'd rather they spent their resources on solving things which are worthy of the courts.
