Max Mosley Drags Google to Court Over 'Orgy' Video Search Results

Max Mosley, former president of Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), has sued Google over embarrassing search results, which the popular search engine generates when someone does a Google search by Mosley's name.

As a former barrister, the ex Formula One boss, is well aware of the court procedures. As the president of Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), which controls F1's and other international motorsports, Mosley gained huge popularity and recognition.

Mosley has filed suits in France as well as Germany in an effort to force the internet giant to monitor as well as censor search results related to the alleged "sado-masochistic orgy".

On Thursday, during Mosley's testimony in front of Leveson inquiry at the royal court of justice in London, the former F1 boss revealed about this action against Google. Currently, Mosley is struggling to remove false, libellous references to alleged "Nazi-themed" orgy on internet, reported The Guardian (opens in new tab).

Mosley incidentally also disclosed that he has initiated "legal action in 22 countries" and also ordered for removing materials from 193 websites operating in Germany.

"The fundamental thing is that Google could stop this appearing but they don't or won't as a matter of principle," he stated by adding, "The really dangerous things are the search engines."
