Court orders YouTube to remove Muslim video
February 27 , 2014
An anti-Muslim video cannot be viewed on YouTube any longer since a federal court ordered Google to take it down. 'Innocence of Muslims' dubs the voice of actress Cindy Lee Garcia and calls Mohammed a child molester in the clip. Garcia said the filmmaker deceived her and the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals backed the actress' request.
Reports reveal that Google plans on fighting the decision on the grounds of First Amendment and the company may have a shot.
"The entire video ought to remain available to those who want to get a full understanding of the controversy, and the fair use doctrine ought to be mechanism for doing that," a legal blogger writes.
