Ex-F1 boss vows more steps against Google

27 January 2014, 08:57

Berlin - Max Mosley, the ex-Formula One boss, on Sunday vowed more legal action against Google after a German court ordered the internet giant to block photos of him at a sadomasochistic orgy.

Mosley, 73, said that after German and French legal rulings in his favour in the past two months, he also planned to take the US company to court in California and Britain, in comments to German news weekly Der Spiegel.

While Google was "technically... brilliant, sensational", Mosley charged that the multinational technology firm was also "arrogant" and "doing whatever it wants", adding that morally its "management is simply immature".

On Friday a Hamburg court found that Google must block six images taken from a video of the orgy that was filmed by Britain's now defunct News of the World tabloid, because they had violated Mosley's privacy.

Google announced it would appeal, saying the ruling had sent a "disturbing message".

Mosley told Der Spiegel that his next steps in Germany and France would be to legally battle Google over the search engine's "auto-complete" function that suggests strings such as "Mosley prostitute video" when his name is entered.
