$200,000 Judgement Against Google In Mokbel Shots Case


niftydude writes with news of damages awarded in a case over Google image search results “Should Google be held liable for images that appear in its search results? An Australian court has said yes.
‘A Melbourne man who won a defamation case against search engine giant Google has been awarded $200,000 in damages. Milorad Trkulja, also known as Michael, sued the multinational over images of him alongside a well-known underworld figure that appeared in its search results. A six-person Supreme Court jury found last month that Mr Trkulja had been defamed by the images, which he first contacted Google about removing in 2009.'”
