YouTube gets sued over sex video of top model
http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/16456527.htm

The temporary blockage of YouTube's website by a Brazilian judge has cast light on the country's struggle with cyber-law

RIO DE JANEIRO - A time-honored Brazilian pastime -- getting frisky with a significant other on the beach -- has ignited a nationwide debate about Internet freedoms.

The difference in this case is that the sex caught on video and displayed on the Internet involved one of Brazil's top models, Daniela Cicarelli, cavorting with her boyfriend on the Spanish seaside.

She sued, leading a Brazilian judge last week not only to block access to the video but also to shut down Brazilian access to the popular video-sharing website YouTube, which is owned by Mountain View, Calif.-based Google. It was the first Brazilian effort to block access to an international Web site.

The order has prompted outrage and debate about whether Brazilian authorities are resorting to draconian measures.
