Submission + - Irish judge orders 'the internetz' to delete video (www.rte.ie)

edanto writes: A young Irish man wrongly accused of jumping from a taxi without paying the fare has secured a judgement from an Irish court ordering the video removed from the entire internet. Experts from Google, Youtube, Facebook and others must tell the court in two weeks if this is technically possible.
The thing is, the _video_ is accurate, it is only a comment that wrongly identified Eoin McKeogh as the fare-jumper in the video that is inaccurate. It's not clear if the judge has made any orders about the comment.
