The controversy over a YouTube posting of Daniela Cicarelli's sexy romp with a Brazilian banker has ended with a judicial decision prompting bans of YouTube across Brazil.
On Monday, YouTube was unavailable in areas served by Brasil Telecom SA from the capital of Brasilia to the Amazon, though it still worked in heavily populated Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, where Internet use is heaviest.
Sao Paulo and Rio are served by No. 1 fixed-line operator Empresa Brasileira de Telecomunicacoes SA, which did not respond to messages seeking comment on whether it was among the companies receiving orders from the judge.
This is how freedom ends; not with a bang, but with a supermodel.
