Brazil judge orders arrest of Google exec over elections law
(Reuters) - A regional elections court in Brazil has ordered the arrest of the head of Google's operations in the country after the company failed to take down YouTube videos attacking a local mayoral candidate.
The ruling, which Google is appealing, marks the second time in two weeks that Brazilian judges have ordered the apprehension of executives at the search engine giant for not cooperating with local election laws.
Another example why these campaigning restriction laws must go. They are totally incompatible with freedom of speech.
