HAM­BURG — A Ger­man court ruled yes­ter­day that Google must block pho­tos of a sado­masochis­tic orgy in­volv­ing for­mer For­mula One boss Max Mosley.

The court said the six im­ages taken from a video of the orgy that was filmed by Bri­tain’s now de­funct News of the World tabloid se­ri­ously breached Mosley’s pri­vacy.

Google must pre­vent the pic­tures be­ing shown on its Ger­man­based site, in­clud­ing via links on its search en­gine, the court in the north­ern city of Ham­burg ruled, “In the court’s view the pic­tures of­fered se­ri­ously vi­o­late the plain­tiff’s pri­vacy”, said judge Si­mone Kae­fer.

The rul­ing is the lat­est in a string of le­gal bat­tles waged by 73­year­old Mosley re­lated to the pub­li­ca­tion of the video and a 2008 ar­ti­cle pub­lished by the Ru­pert Mur­doch­owned Bri­tish news­pa­per al­leg­ing it was a Nazithemed orgy. — Sapa­AFP.
