A very interesting court case is currently taking place in the United States, where Google was ordered to remove an anti-Islamic movie from YouTube after it had sparked protests across the Muslim world.
Media reports reveal that the US court rejected Google’s claim that the removal of the movie "Innocence of Muslims" amounted to a prior restraint of speech that infringed the Constitution of the United States.
In other words, YouTube would have to take down the movie, but Google seems to be going to appeal to the Supremes. The plaintiff, Cindy Lee Garcia, demanded the movie taken down after learning that it contained a clip she had made for another movie and where she had been partially dubbed to say, "Is your Mohammed a child molester?"
Her lawyers pointed out that the propaganda movie differs so radically from Garcia’s expectations when the director told her that she was being cast in the innocent adventure movie. The controversial movie depicted the prophet Mohammed as a fool and a sexual deviant. Of course, the film created lots of anti-American unrest among Muslims in many countries a couple years ago.
Many Muslims consider any depiction of the prophet a bit blasphemous, but this movie made it just plain insulting. The rumors were that the film was an Israeli plot to destabilize the Middle East, as life there was just getting too comfortable.
Google had refused to remove the movie from its video streaming service, even despite pressure from the White House and others. However, it blocked the trailer in a range of Muslim countries. The tech giant argued that Cindy Lee Garcia appeared in the movie for 5 seconds only, and she might have legal claims against the moviemakers, but shouldn’t win a lawsuit against Google.
Google claimed that the laws permit even the vilest criticisms of governments, political leaders, and religious figures as legitimate exercises in free speech, and it therefore should win the case. In response, Garcia argued that her performance within the movie was independently copyrightable, so she retained an interest in that copyright.
The court has recently agreed that Garcia was likely to prevail on her copyright claim, because after facing serious threats against her life, she also faced irreparable harm absent an injunction.

|ha ha ha. stand for something ? so its okay if i talk and say stuff that will get anybody angry and hurt. for example i represent your mother or sister in someways that you or any man wont like. is it still my freedom ?|
. no it is not. You cannot do whatever you want, if everything is okay then why do we have jails and laws.
Muslims respect there Prophet and GOD. and if people just for i dont know what reason make comments and movies just to annoy muslims . now that is idiotic .
Do you know why drinking beer is allowed but driving while being drunk is not allowed ?
becoz when u r drunk its your problem but when drive while being drunk ,now its every one's problem becoz you can driveover people and hit them.
so use freedom until its your problem but when you try to hurt people around you ,then u got no freedom todo so.
just becoz some people said Black's were lower then white's and turned them in slaves and every one followed that idiotic theory , doesnt mean they were right . today we know we were wrong . Lets learn and start respecting people
|The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called 'hypocrites' and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.|
|Jumbo71 my behind is more Christian than you. What the hell are you saying? That Christians did more killings through history? What have u been reading you moron..go and hide yourself behind a rock you idiot.stupid retarded liberal|

|Again a misleading title. As some have mentioned the order is due to the female being screwed over and not portrayed as was expected..|
As for the Muslim issue? Stop killing anyone not of your faith and beliefs; then maybe the world might trust you a little; not likely though since your Koran states anyone not of the "faith" must die.. Killing your own blood on a BS perceived breach of "honor", and all that other BS the world knows about..
As for the other idiot poster making claims of Christians killing to most through out the ages is plain BS.. More likely this moron is confused about the "crusades" that happened over 500 years ago and was caused not by "Christians"; But by the Church of England..
This is directly to this moron; show documented proof any "Religion" NOT MUSLIM has either blown up schools, churches, pizza parlors, discos, hospitals; sawed off the head of a truck driver while screaming in agony in living color by a 12 year old boy brain washed with hate, and a whole allot more?
Generally causing the world a whole lot of misery and death.. I dare you..
|Religion blah blah blah|
Download and watch this, then argue all you like, the Pagans still beat you all to it.
Give me all your money now, and i alone will help god accept you and take you under his wing, after you die of coarse.

|No winning on the whole religious thing. To me, there is no "right" religion, only what feels right (if any) for you. I see this debate as much more simple. The US Constitution guarantees freedom of speech. In fact, the more the speech pisses someone off, the more protected it needs to be. That is our law. So basically, if someone wants to say that Mohammed sucks, or Jesus sucks, or whoever sucks, that is tough shit for those who don't like what was said. For us to tailor what we say or write because it pisses off a bunch of Muslims (or anyone) is just dumb.|
|A professor at a State college and I several years ago downloaded the Koran into a fairly simple search program. You could type in phrases like "must die" "murder" disbelievers must input word such as murdered die etc. then enter search and these words aren't there. There were however a couple of instances when there were some words and phrases that could be taken totally out of context. It could be hypothesized that a very small percentage of Muslims crazies used these parts of the Koran to justify the insanity of their actions such as 9-11, Lockerbie etc. Whatever the case may be if I am on airplane and there are two or three individuals are warring turbans it would make very nervous and that is in my view shameful.|

|@majordik: The Church of England didn't even exist at the time of the Crusades,( I believe it was a Pope Leo, 'though I cannot remember which number, who called for the First Crusade). Members of the Church of England ARE Christians, just like Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans, and a whole host of others,(isn't it funny just how widespread organized insanity is?)are all Christians. When Christianity was the same age Islam is now it was just as barbaric and intolerant. Maybe in another 500 years or so, Islam will become like Christianity is today or, better still, maybe Man will become rational and stop worshipping imaginary buggaboos altogether.|

|Tdatb - The Church of England is the officially established Christian church in England and the Mother Church of the worldwide Anglican Communion. The church considers itself within the tradition of Western Christianity and dates its formal establishment principally to the mission to England by Saint Augustine of Canterbury in AD 597.|
The church became so powerful it had its own army and at times dictated policy to the king.
THAT is why in the U.S. Constitution there is a "separation of church and state"; all the "Countries" that have a religious based government "Muslim" have created nothing but death and woe unto the world and their own people..

|Its very funny seeing people fighting over Religion. Just notice a simple thing. On this page we may not know each other and we might not fight over any other issues, but the moment it comes to religion we started fighting. Dudes who the fcuk are we to judge which religion is great and which not, which one to follow and which one to avoid or criticize. Its all about being a good person and being humble and not hurting other people by any means.|
We are not given any right to hurt other people or kill or bit someone else up. And as far as i know all the religion including Islam, speaks the language of peace even in Holy Quran its been mentioned that people are to follow their own religion. Hinduism, Buddhism, Christian-ism, Islam and other known or unknown religions, are they violent? I believe not.
But it does matter as one said, you can have whatever opinion you have and you can put your own finger wherever in your body doesn't matter, but when it comes down to other people, it does matter. Before saying anything, think that if you are said the same thing that you are about to say to others, how would you feel (only if you are a sensible and responsible "Human Being")?

|The truth of the matter is that muslims will kill in the name of the imaginary god mohammed, as a Christian I will do nothing (maybe just a tongue in cheek comment on ET) to harm anybody in the name of my true LORD and saviour, reason being that He alone will deal with any blasfemers or any person who brings scorn to His name.|
Beware the wrath of GOD.
Dude you are a moron. Why are you arguing over religion? If a person is bad then he will do bad things irrespective of his/her religion.

|The truth of the matter is the following, Ignorance has no religion so people killing in the name of Islam, Christianity or whatever are no more than ignorants|
and seeing such comments from the likes of alexanderlecard and alklimke and prophet69 I just have to say one thing, before you form any kind of opinion about anything you have to first educate yourself about the topic.
So saying Islam is good or Islam is bad without even reading the Quran or reading the explanation of the Quran or even doing some research about it tells me that you're just plain ignorant no better than the stupid people killing others in the name of religion
I don't care wheather those are ignorant, true, manipulated or stupid moslem.
it is still koran/islam that they follow. so either koran contains verses that incite people to behave like savages and to treat nonmoslem like animals
or koran is not so holy and clear and easy to understand as it claims to be and must be changed accordingly so no follower misunderstands it and blows up nonbelievers

|skull junkie has the most correct comment. a|
and for others please judge muslims by there history of 1400 years and not last 14 years of al-qaida's non-islamic killings.
and for those who are pointing things like kill non-belivers and stuff ,they should go read the Quran and stop believing in some people on t.v who just want to spread hate and violence by coding/giving wrong information. and some one said God mohammad ???? see they dont even know Mohammad (PBUH) is not a God and yet people claim to know islam and judge it ,just becoz some crazy people used the name of islam to kill others.
humans do this and have done this in past.
They use something as a way to kill others. which has nothing todo with the reality = brainwashing.
and comeon so much blows up non-believers again n again. pick up the history and tell me how many people have died and who killed them in past 500 years,while muslims were present but didnt toke part in those wars and stayed peacefull.
Just becoz some groups blow up people in west you take 1 billion people todo so ?

|Good try atif504, but I will never pollute my mind with such filth.|
By the way GOD is the creator of all things even muslims, and even the idols they worship as a test to them, and this is what makes me sad, only a small hand full of them
have passed the test.
To everybody else who is trying to narrow everything down to a religion or just down to Christianity, you need to educate yourselves.

This is not the case only for Quran. and it's not Quran that should be blamed for this, but easily manipulated people and ignorance and prejudice and hatred and and ....
For example the same happens in the name of Christianity (i.e the crusades). so again to my point it's not the religion that causes anything bad. if you try and give yourself a chance to read the Quran you will see how it urges people to be kind to one another (all the killing parts that any stupid person is using is in case of self defense a kill or be killed situation)

ALLAH created SINS and because ALLAH wanted to balance the whole earth system, If there no SINS in HUMAN nature then no need of universe.
Alkimke, I am not trying to convince you , I am just explaining that Muslims are not those who kills ... Even in christians , hindus, etc bad and good people exists.
Christians believe in Jesus( Hazrat Essaa Aleh Sallam) But The Bible in your word you can say that OUTDATED, Bible is changed and Bible sent to the people of world withh specific warn,
So, ALLAH wanted to sent complete book for human world, to understand what is right and what is wrong.
In QURAAN jahad means to control your inner bad thoughts and defend yourself,
Not to fight and kills with bombs.
Sorry for my mistakes in english because its not my national language.. But Everyone should have to understand eachother's Right.
In QURAAN JEWS are not even allowed for friendship, That is why our MUSLIM world not giving them full hand to enter in our country, They have great plans to destroy earth, Even NOW i warn US from Now, Please stop funding ISRAEL , They are blaming MUSLIMS but one day ISRAEL will take over the whole US .. And there will be no Obama or CIA to save.
Save your countries from JEWS.
Because the day will come... And Soon...
|do not bring up crusades, they happened hundreds years ago (the judgement on that issue is not so black and white anyway)and, since then Christianity was able to adjust its teachings so even if old testament contains texts that are violent and discriminatory, Christians don't follow them to the letter.|
Sadly moslems still follow the Koran and hadiths exactly the way they were meant by barbaric tribes of Arabia. I am an ateist and I will criticise and defend myself against any ideology, religion like islam if it threatens my and others way of living. If you read Koran and other Islamic writings and if you are objective than it is impossible how hostile, expansive and discriminatory they are. just enough to look at the followers like atif504. it is unreal how brainwashed they are. You guys are saying one thing to others and completely different things among yourselves. I know it, I saw it
myself. Islam history is a constant conquest of other religions or fight among themselves. Yes Christians were like this long time ago but they were able to evolve, you guys are still stuck in these barbaric times and becase islam is not reformable, you will stay where you are forever. until you cross the line and get destroyed. Unfortunately it is going to happen and looking around the world that moment is approaching.
|i just want to raise few points|
1. who started the first world war? were they muslims? no they were not, find out who they were.
2. who started the second world war? were they muslims? no they were not, find out who they were.
3. attacked Heroshima and Nagasaki with an atomic bomb? who was that? that was America. i guess everyone knows about it. these incidents took billions of innocent lives at once.
so my question is who is terrorist?

|Well said numbnut. I find it utterly perplexing that so many people are arguing about what religion is "right", or which one is more "moral" or "immoral", when ALL 3 Abrahamic religions are based on immoral Iron/Bronze Age beliefs, practices & superstitions, which are viewed by most modern civilised people to be barbaric. How many people think that slavery, torture, rape, genocide ect.. is moral? If you say 'no' then you should also view all 3 Abrahamic religions as immoral. Not to mention the fact that no religion that has ever existed has been shown to be correct, based on what we know about reality, which is why its called "FAITH", which is a belief without evidence..... Everyone may as well be arguing about who would win in an arm wrestle between Moses & Mohammad! Any conclusion would have to be based on personal biases & speculation due to the total absence demonstrable evidence, thus any conclusion would be invalid.|
|@jax---I agree with you, but we live in a world where religions are possibly most important fo huge majority of population. There I no way to ban all religions. So we must zero in on defending ourselves against a religion that threatens us, the one that is violent, expansive,dangerous to your way of living. is it Christianity or buddism or Judaism or islam.|
@moaza--- none of what you mentioned have anything to to with religion moreso with economics - Nazis killed jews and catholics, japan killed people of all religions, anyway your argument was rejected so many times and still is being brought up, I guess it is like a reflex

|@darwinobambino: again you're proving my point you dont know much about Quran or Hadiths to actually say that muslims follow them, if all muslims followed them we wouldnt even have this discussion.|
As I said take a moment of your time and do some research about Quran and how it's urging people to be good to one another and spread peace
As for the Crusades I think they should be brought up, in case you don't know George W Bush after September 11 said and I quote:"this crusade, this war on terrorism is going to take a while" but if you don't want to talk about crusades, what about Anders Breivik (for an example if you want more incidents you can just google it)?
Once again to reiterate what I am saying is that extremists in any religion or belief who don't think about what they are doing (Ignorants) are the problem not the religion.

I can certainly understand the poor woman's reluctance to let her career (such as it is, it's hers) be ruined by a dishonest film-maker. She should be allowed to remove her performance from the film, since the performance was obtained under false pretenses. She should not be allowed to remove the entire film from circulation. Maybe nothing will be left after all the other participants sue to remove their performances on the grounds that they, too, were deceived. I would be comfortable with that.
