Google fined for someone else's graffiti

Sabriel (134364) writes "Google's appeal against a 2008 defamatory anonymous posting on Orkut has been denied in Brazil, and Google fined $US8500 ($9100) for the crime of being vandalised. In the words of the judge, Alvimar de Avila, "By making space available on virtual networking sites, in which users can post any type of message without any checks beforehand, with offensive and injurious content, and, in many cases, of unknown origin, [Google] assumes the risk of causing damage [to other people],".

I'd submit a more blunt opinion of this farce, but it might be considered offensive and injurious content... I wonder if he's related to the judge in Italy?"
