this was the trial against G. for not removing the video in a short time, and it was not related to the uploaders.
In the italian system, if the judge, during a trial, has notice of a new/different crime that is not related to that trial, he is obliged by law to open a "branch" on that particular case and to pass the satte of the facts to an other judge who will investigate on this new crime and, if necessary, with a new trial.
So, relating to this case, a crime charge against the uploaders is something different (and will have a different trial) , and must not be confused with the trial to G. and the G.-execs, whether they can be found guilty or not.
you say G. is not a judge: well, now please feel free to give a wide explanation of why G. have policies for under-aged people about sex- or violence- related videos or videos that could offend everyones' sensibility.
Don't confuse abuse-reporting to italian authorities (never made) to abuse-reporting to G. itself by other youtube users.
your argomentation is weak, and it can't take two months to remove a video of, I say it again, two fu**ing i*iots hitting a mental-diseased guy "just for fun" after tons of abuse-reports and requests to remove.
