Virginia da Cunha (born 15 June 1981, in Cordoba, Argentina) is an Argentine singer-songwriter, composer and actress. She is best known as a plaintiff in a protracted lawsuit against Google and Yahoo! in Argentina.
In her suit, da Cunha alleged that the search engines had damaged her 'moral character' by returning her name and likeness among results for sex related searches. Although the lower courts ruled in favour of da Cunha, the internet companies appealed, and the verdict was overturned. While not alone in suing Yahoo! and Google (similar lawsuits in Argentina, Brasil, and other Latin American nations number over a hundred), amongst similar cases in Argentina, de Cunha's has progressed the furthest.
