Ex-F1 boss wins court case against Google over blocking ` sadomasochistic Nazi-orgy` pics

Sydney – Former Formula One chief Max Mosley has reportedly won an ongoing court battle with Google after a landmark French court ruling ordered the search giant to stop providing links to images of a ‘sadomasochistic orgy’ involving Mosley.

Mosley has won a string of legal battles related to the publication of the video, which was filmed by Britain’s now defunct News of the World tabloid, with the case starting with a libel suit against the paper over its claim, in March 2008, that the orgy was Nazi-themed.

According to News.com.au, the ruling relates to nine images taken from a video of the orgy although Mosley’s legal team failed to secure a broader ruling, which would have also forced Google to block access to any further extracts from the video.

However, the report mentioned that Google announced that it would appeal against the decision as it fears it will set a dangerous legal precedent for costly and heavy-handed automated censorship of the Internet.

The appeal however, will not suspend the ruling, which Google now has two months to comply with, and the report added that the court also fined Google a symbolic one euro and ordered the company to pay 5,000 euros in court costs.
