Google Responds to Celebrity Nude Photo Leak $100 Million Lawsuit - Read the Statement

Google has responded to the $100 million lawsuit they were slammed with earlier in regards to the celebrity nude photo leak.

The lawsuit said that Google was at fault for not removing the images of the naked women.

“We’ve removed tens of thousands of pictures, within hours of the requests being made, and we have closed hundreds of accounts,” a spokesperson for the company said in a statement today (via Deadline). “The Internet is used for many good things. Stealing people’s private photos is not one of them.

The Google statement also said that they rely on people to submit valid Digital Millennium Copyright Act content and claims for images that should not be allowed on the search engine.

Lawyer Marty Singer said that he sent Google over a dozen requests on behalf of unnamed celebrities to remove images before taking further action.
