Just learned from today's news that 3 Google executives were convited by a Milan court for violating the privacy of an Italian boy with Down's Syndrom by letting a video of him being bullied be posted on the site in 2006. Nowadays, we may easily offend one's privacy, like uploading a picture of your friend's on the internet etc. So what is privacy in your opionin, please share

Hard question. I guess there isn't a certain level of privacy that we all should use. If someone for example wants to upload naked pictures of himself who says that isn't his wright? But if someone else does that without permission that is invading privacy. But publishing pictures of friends from a party is also not ok if they don't want them to be published. But what are you suppose to do? Never upload any pictures or blur your friends? It is hard to decide what is wright or wrong.

I hadn't heard about that. The whole thing seems to be pretty tricky. I guess when they are in charge of such a large corporation, they have to be extra careful to watch what they are doing, and looking over everything with a fine tooth comb. With the internet as crazy as it is now, I don't know how to even define privacy via the web anymore.
