Youtube Blocked

Daniela Cicarelli

Daniela Cicarelli

In a bizarre twist of events Youtube was blocked in Brazil.  Brazilian supermodel and TV personality Daniela Cicarelli was filmed getting abit close to her boyfriend while on holiday in Spain, and naturally the clip ended up in Youtube. The case went to court and Youtube was ordered to get rid of the videos but every time one video was deleted another emerged. The video was collecting more hits than any other video in Brazil with views reaching into the millions. Youtube was later sued by the model Daniela and the judge ordered youtube to be banned in Brazil. Many waited to see whether the ban would actually happen and to the surprise of many it did. Youtube has however now been restored in Brazil and somewhat ironically Daniella appeared on Youtube to give viewers her side of the story. Many in Brazil and indeed throughout the world will be wondering if blocking Youtube was the right thing to do…
