Brazilian court orders shutdown of YouTube

A celebrity sex video on YouTube has recently been causing quite a fiasco down in Brazil, and a Brazilian judge thinks that YouTube should be shut down because of it.

Speaking of demands to control online video content, a judge in Brazil has ordered that user-generated video site YouTube be shut down over a celebrity sex video that keeps showing up. The video features Brazilian model Daniela Cicarelli having sex on the beach with her boyfriend, Tato Malzoni.

It seems that Brazil really has something against Google, because 6 months ago, the country tried to sue Montain View's giant for not revealing user information from certain people using its Orkut social network site. Is this new event part of an larger scheme trying to discredit Google in the eyes of Brazilians, or are the 2 stories completely unrelated?
