Italian Appellate Court Overturns Convictions Of Google Execs

An Italian appeals court has overturned the 2010 criminal convictions of three Google executives,  Peter Fleischer, David Drummond, and George Reyes, for failing to remove promptly an online video in which a boy was shown being bullied. The video had been loaded on a Google-owned website. Google had attempted to defend on the grounds that it had removed the video as soon as it learned of its content. More here from the New York Times.
