After Banning Entire Site, Brazilian Court Sides With YouTube; Tells Model To Pay Up
from the talk-about-an-about-face dept
Remember when a judge in Brazil banned the entire YouTube over a video of a famous Brazilian model having sex on the beach? Eventually, following quite an uproar, the judge rescinded the ban, but the case went on. Boing Boing is now reporting that the judge hasn’t just sided with YouTube, but is ordering the model to pay Google and other video hosting companies as compensation for the lawsuit. Of course, when the ban first was making the news, the model had said that she wasn’t so concerned about the video, but that it was her boyfriend in the video who didn’t like it. Wonder which one of them will pay the fine?

so excited, I hit the enter key prematurely.
I don’t think her boyfriend will care…
he’s had that
I know if there was video proof of me having sex with a Brazilian model I’d *definitely* not want that to leak out.
If you don’t want people to see you doing “it”, don’t do “it” at the beach …
Whatever “it” means …
maybe she wants the attention...
a lot of girls love that sort of attention. Similar to many of the fine ladies on myspace. I’m a collector, see my site:
What really happened is...
Acording to Brazilian law, the part that looses the lawsuit has to pay all legal expenses, like Google´s lawyer. The process also involved Globo, a major news company and the iG web portal, because of them reproducing pictures and links to copies of the video on YouTube.
