Google Execs Sued Over Shocking YouTube Harrassment

Internet giant Google is set to face charges in Italy over footage posted on its YouTube site of four teens picking on a teen with Down Syndrome.

This case has an interesting twist because four Google executives—the chairman of Google Italy at the time, a Google Italy board member, a European privacy policy executive, and the once head of Google Video for Europe—have been charged in regards to this case.

Google has had several legal suits brought against them in many different countries. Thus far, the Internet has been a free and predominantly unregulated space.

The outcome of this case could lead to a change.
