 German Jewish Group Sues Google over YouTube

The Central Council of Jews in Germany filed a temporary injunction March 20, 2008, against Google in Hamburg District Court. The Jewish group demands that Google pull hate videos from its YouTube subsidiary. Among the offending videos was one in which a photo of the late president of the Central Council, Paul Spiegel, was burned against a background of swastikas. According to Business Week, Stephan Kramer, the general secretary of the Central Council of Jews explained the move: "The radical right-wing scene is using YouTube, massively, as a platform. We are accusing Google, with its YouTube video platform subsidiary of being an accomplice to inciting racial hatred and discrimination."
