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.
