Yahoo As A War Criminal

from the seems-a-bit-harsh dept

A French court is looking to charge Yahoo! and its former CEO, Tim Koogle in a criminal court for condoning war crimes because they’ve allowed Nazi merchandise to be sold through their site. Of course, this case has been going on forever, and a US judge has already said that the US-based company doesn’t have to comply with French laws on their US-based site. But, escalating this to criminal court and naming the former CEO as well seems like they’re going a bit over the top.

What's good for the goose... says:

criminal law

Well this is NICE change of pace I must say.

We’ve seen the U.S.A. enforce it’s own brand of
law all over the world. The U.S.A. has even
invaded other nations and kidnapped citizens of
other nations only to throw them in U.S.A. jails
for things that were not crimes in the citizen’s
home country.

I say fire the bugger! Take manifest destiny
back down a notch. Super power only has created
a super bully!
