Following on from this thread [webmasterworld.com], the Wall Stree Journal reports in this article [online.wsj.com] that ths situation has escalated from one of Fine to one of Criminal Charges.
|The head of Google's Brazilian operation is facing criminal contempt charges for refusing to turn Orkut users' data over to police. |
Also, the "fines" situation is stepping up a notch as well.
|next month there is a hearing in a case brought by a São Paulo prosecutor threatening daily fines of $100,000 or the shuttering of Google's Brazil office. |
One wonder how far this will go before a resolution is reached.
