Submission + - Italy seeks removal of 'defamatory' iPhone app (idg.com.au) 2

angry tapir writes: "Italy's tourism minister, Michela Brambilla, has instructed the official state lawyer to seek the removal from sale of a "defamatory" iPhone application and to take legal action against the app's maker. The "What Country" application, produced by Apalon, a division of MoveYourWeb, provides immediately recognizable national stereotypes to accompany users' tourist photos in a photographic album."

      Mrs. Michela Brambilla is usually very busy in making blowjobs to our Prime Godfather Silvio Berlusconi... but now he's too busy for this because the government is falling and he has to stay in charge to avoid being prosecuted for his numerous pending trials (tax evasion, judge corruption and many other nice things), so she jumped on the first useless thing she found to do.. besides that, the incriminated sentence on the app (Mafia accouts for 10% of GDP) is not defamatory, it's TRUE!
