Google fork out $500,000 to Rubens Barrichello

Google fork out $500,000 to Rubens Barrichello

Formula One drivers have a reputation for being techheads with pictures of Jacques Villeneuve gaming on high end PC’s – apparently one of his passions. Rubens Barrichello however is huge fan of Twitter.

In 2006 Barrichello launched a lawsuit after the Orkut social network service (owned by Google) failed to disable fake profiles and also refused him access to opening an account under his real name. He was originally denied an account entirely.

This morning the case came to a final verdict and the courts have ordered Google to pay him $500,000 in damages and to close over 300 fake profiles on Orkut. While this seems a rather stiff verdict the court decided that Orkut’s owner were in fact held accountable for mismanaging their own terms of service and continually accepted breaches of their own ToS.
