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 Eventually, following quite an uproar, the judge rescinded the ban, but the case went on.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?
