Google to block YouTube video in Brazil after losing court appeal

The director of Google in Brazil was detained for disobeying a court order

By , IDG News Service |  Internet

In December last year, Google received an electoral court order in Brazil that resulted in the removal of four profiles from its Orkut social networking site for content related to political campaigns, the company said in its Transparency Report. Government requests for content removal are high in Brazil relative to other countries partly because of the popularity of Orkut in the country, Google said.
