Italy court overturns conviction of Google executives for privacy violation
Sarah Posner at 10:32 AM ET
In 2010 an Italian court found the three Google executives guilty of privacy violations [JURIST report] for allowing a video depicting bullying to be posted on its website. The court in Milan found that the three men, David Carl Drummond, George De Los Reyes and Peter Fleitcher, violated the privacy rights of a young man with Down syndrome when they allowed a video showing his classmates bullying him to remain on the Google Italy website from September to November 2006. All three men were given a suspended sentence, though prosecutors had asked for a one-year imprisonment.
