Google Inc.’s head of operations in Brazil was detained by the country’s federal police Wednesday, September 26, 2012 after the company failed to heed a judge’s order to take down YouTube videos that the court ruled violate Brazilian electoral law. The detention came as another court ordered YouTube to remove clips of an anti-Islam film that has been blamed for deadly protests by Muslims around the globe, both joining a spate of court-ordered content-removal cases against Google’s video-sharing website in Brazil.
