Google’s Brazil Chief Detained; Court Bans Anti-Islam Video

SÃO PAULO, Brazil—The country’s Federal Police detained the head of Google Inc.’s Brazilian operations after the company failed to act on an electoral judge’s order to remove videos from its YouTube site criticizing a candidate in a rural state election.

Separately, a Brazilian judge ordered Google to remove versions of the “Innocence of the Muslims” video that has sparked deadly riots across the Middle East from Brazilian YouTube within 10 days or face fines. The ruling was in response to a suit brought by a group called the National Union of Islamic Entities, according to court documents.

Apparently no one will be sent to prison, but Google will be fined $4,926/day if Google doesn’t remove the “Innocence of the Muslims” video.

Sharia-by-the inch?
