This ruling overturns a 2010 conviction in which senior vice president and chief legal counsel David Drummond, Google Italy board member George De Los Reyes, and global privacy counsel Peter Fleischer were sentenced to six months imprisonment.

 

Google maintained that its company members held no responsibility for the video which was uploaded by four students which was removed a few days later when the video was brought to the company's attention.
