France Orders Google to Block Mosley Images

A French court yesterday ordered Google, starting in two months time, to block 9 photographs of Max Mosley, former president of F1’s governing body, secretly taken at a sex party some five years ago.

When Max Mosley was secretly filmed by the defunct News of the World at a sex party involving prostitutes, he admitted most of the accusations while denying that it was ‘Nazi-themed.’ His father had, of course, been leader of the British Fascist party at the time of the Second World War.

Mosley sued the newspaper for breach of privacy, and won in both Britain and France. At the time, the BBC reported, “Mr Justice Eady said he could expect privacy for consensual “sexual activities (albeit unconventional)”. The problem for Mosley is that the cat was not merely out of the bag, it was on the internet – and since then he has been trying to remove or block access to photos from the party; especially when made available via Google’s search engine.
