COURT BANS MOSLEY ORGY PICS
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 google.de 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.
