FOIandDP's insight:

And now the hacking begins. And the company holding the wallets says "oh, we are REALLY sorry". This sounds like the beginning of the end for bitcoins. All of their previous momentum has just flown out the door.

LONDON — A French court ruled Wednesday that Google must remove from its Internet search results all images of a former Formula One racing chief at an orgy. The ruling in the privacy case could have ramifications for the tech giant’s operations across Europe.

Max Mosley, the former president of the International Automobile Federation, had filed the lawsuit in September to force Google to automatically filter from its search engine links to images from a British newspaper report in 2008 that included photos and a video of Mosley participating in a sadomasochistic sex party.

The former F1 head successfully sued the News of the World in a London court for breach of privacy and was awarded about $96,000, in damages.
