Hopefully this will mark the end of the saga, but after we criticized Brazilian model Daniela Cicarelli for bringing about a YouTube ban in her home country and trying fruitlessly to stop the spread of a potentially career-enhancing "sex tape", we should probably follow-up on her side of the story. Cicarelli appeared on Brazilian TV last night, and in newspapers today, pointing out that she opposed the judge's YouTube ban which has since been reversed and that it was her boyfriend, Brazilian banker Renato Malzoni, who filed the lawsuit that resulted in YouTube being blocked until Tuesday. Both Cicarelli and those behind her TV show have good reasons to avoid the blame - YouTube is massively popular in Brazil and everywhere else , and thousands of Brazilians had launched an e-mail protest against her and demanded a boycott of her program on Brazilian MTV. Increasingly, it seems that the technologically challenged judge was to blame: he ordered Brazilian Internet providers to block access to the YouTube clip, but didn't realize that the ISPs couldn't comply unless they blocked the whole site.
