Net Firms Face Fines

Google faces a fine of $2.7bn by the European Commission over a competition ruling on its shopping service, and Germany passes a law that requires internet firms to take down illegal content within 24 hours of being reported or face big penalties. Have regulators found their teeth against the internet giants? We ask Jeff Jarvis, author of the book "What would Google do?". Plus, will artificial intelligence be a useful tool in computer security? Emily Orton of security firm Darktrace tells why she thinks so. Presented by Rory Cellan-Jones, with BBC Online tech correspondent Mark Ward, and special guest Kate Bevan, journalist and computer security specialist.
