Four executives in no way related to the incident were convicted in absentia. I'm not sure how important this particular court is in Italy - any Italian gurus here? - however the case suggests Google should get permission from every person in every video uploaded; moderating them all. This is of course ridiculous and has massive implications for many internet sites. On the bright side, hopefully this will get overturned on appeal; and I don't see this case setting any kind of international precedent as this is just one of a number of crazy legal decisions coming out from Italy in the last few years.
