You don’t have to think about this very long before you get a chill up your spine:
Three Google executives were convicted of violating Italian privacy laws on Wednesday, the first case to hold the company’s executives criminally responsible for the content posted on its system.
The content was a YouTube video posted by some random person. Google took the video down within two hours of being notified that it was in violation of Italian law. Still, some Google executives are now convicted criminals in Italy.
I keep waiting for the day that someone gets convicted in some restrictive country for daring to post a picture of a woman with her face and/or ankles exposed on their website. Or perhaps for providing firearms training videos on the Internet in China.
And don’t forget similar things have happened in this country even before the Internet.
Somewhere there is one or more governments which would send you to prison for something you do as a normal everyday activity–freedom is a never ending battle.
