Google’s liability in Italy

A few other articles on the three Google’s executives declared responsible in Italy because of a YouTube video.

Columnist Claims Italy’s Google Verdict Makes Sense, TechDirt, 9 March 2010 (with M. Masnick obviously disagreeing)

and a speech by Lessign at the Italian Parliament, probably scheduled long ago and thus a coincidence with the verdict, “Lessig Gives A Well-Timed Speech To The Italian Parliament On Internet Freedom“, TechDirt, 11 March 2010

and some pointing out that the EU may prefer privacy to freedom of speech. It is not wholly true, but yes, Europe definitely has a different vision of what is privacy in comparison with the US and even the UK, “Where Are The European Regulators In Charge Of Protecting Freedom Of Expression?” TechDirt, 9 March 2010

The problem is certainly due to the abundance of information available, despite the shortcomings in some countries of censorship, “Society Doesn’t Know How To Deal With Abundance” TEchDirt, 11 March 2010
