The trial of Google executives charged in Italy over the publication of a video on YouTube where a handicapped child was beaten has been postponed, the BBC News reported.
"On trial are Google's senior vice president and chief legal Officer David Drummond, former chief financial officer George Reyes, senior product marketing manager Arvind Desikan, and global privacy counsel Peter Fleischer," BBC News noted.
This story first broke in February when charges were made. The video had been posted to YouTube prior to Google purchasing the company but were made because they had not been taken down.
Expecting all videos to be policed would in effect close YouTube and other video sites due to the sheer cost involved.
The trial is set to start in September.
