Google ordered to pay 500,000 dlrs to F1 racer Barrichello by AFP: Yahoo! Tech

google has been fined because of the fake profiles of Rubens Barrichello on orkut which were not removed!

this is pretty bad. :D

well you are not a brand that could suffer. :D

but you can probably sue for allowing impersonation.

the new updated IT law i think has some provisions for safety from these kind of problems.

----------

as a web service provider, i cannot be held accountable as long as i provide support to prevent these kind of impersonations. i guess that's what the local law is in india.

----------

i guess the laws are different in brazil.

umm of course he is a brand. he is a well known Formula-1 driver who is probably equivalent to Sachin Tendulkar in Brazil!

oh come on. he is THE most experience formula-1 driver ever. and he has won a decent number of races. just because he failed to win a championship does not mean he is going to be any less popular than senna in brazil!

----------

at least for the current generation who could not see senna on the race track :)
