A second actor has sued the search engine over a movie trailer called Innocence of Muslims. The latter is known for mocking the Prophet Mohammad and leading to riots two years ago – 6 months after an American appeals court ruled for another actor and ordered the movie taken off YouTube.
According to Gaylord Flynn, the actor has received death threats and fears for his life. At the same time, Google continues providing its users with access to the movie via pirated content portals known as torrent trackers. This is what his lawsuit, filed in a California federal court, says.
Gaylord Flynn is also suing the movie-maker, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, while saying that the search giant had refused to block access to the film, even after a 9th US circuit court of appeals panel ordered it taken off YouTube 18 months ago. Back then, actor Cindy Lee Garcia sued Google for an injunction, claiming that she owned the copyright of her performance. The first actor also admitted to receive death threats.
In response, Google argued that an injunction amounted to restricting speech, which would violate the US constitution. Now the search giant is demanding a rehearing from the full appeals court.
Innocence of Muslims is a movie that depicts Mohammad as a sexual deviant and a fool. This film sparked waves of anti-US unrest two years ago in a number of Muslim countries, including Egypt, Libya and others. This also coincided with an attack on US diplomatic facilities in Benghazi which killed 4 Americans, including the US ambassador to Libya.
Gaylord Flynn also confirmed that the movie-maker concealed the true nature of his production. The actors thought they were hired for a film called Desert Warrior, and they never consented to be in a religiously oriented movie, nor in the movie propagating hate speech.
Neither Gaylord Flynn nor Cindy Lee Garcia signed a release and their own copyright interests remain intact, according to the complaints.

|No one would ever have seen that stupid video if it weren't for the lie pumped out by govt. hacks to cover Obama's ass before the election. I hate seeing the video myth still popping up as an excuse for ANYTHING. Any riots that happened came as a direct result of exposure to it AFTER the Bengazi attack. "Innocence Of Muslims" was never even completed, only a short "trailer" type movie. On top of that, what I managed to sit through, was a really poorly made, badly acted P.O.S. video. A junior high school student could have made a better "movie" and it surely didn't warrant all of the violence and outrage that resulted. For crying out loud, people died because of that crap film. What a waste...thanks Obama!|
|piss on them, its good enough for other religions to be laid out then iuts good enough for those murdering swine|
|@2 since Islam is a religion which rivals if not surpasses Christianity in numbers which murdering swine are you referring too,I am white Caucasian and Christian and to label all Muslims as murdering swine is Bigoted and racist at best.If any are murdering swine it is those that took the lives of 1.5 million civilians in the 10 years of occupying Iraq under the BS excuse of WMD`s and who despite the immediate surrender of the army day 1 pursued a bombing campaign for months that obliterated cities and killed 1000`s for no good reason in schools and hospitals.Loving the avatar BTW can see where you get your ideas on other races and religions.|
|Since Jesus has not been laid out as number 2 has put it as a sexual deviant one can understand why Muslims are not enjoying the movie,Christians do not mind seeing monty pythons life of Brian since it does not claim Brian to be Jesus Christ although the similarities are there and in Christs name more people have died,been crucified,tortured and been made war upon than for any other political reasons or excuses just ask the Catholics about Torquemada and Inquisitions and let him who is without sin cast the first stone,Amen.|

|Double post ftw Embolism, rant moar |
It's funny how religious fools belittle and look down upon others in their own sphere of decency and then whine when others do the same... I used to be against any wars in the middle east, but seriously you guys are beyond help, being serious about religion in 2014... you guys deserve to be nuked into oblivion, before your stupidity spreads any further.
Only an absolute idiot would believe in something they have never even seen. Even priests in the west know religions a joke, its all about the money money money...
Vatican needs more pure gold water fountains ;_;
P.S Embolism, Jesus was in South Park...nobody cared, I have nothing more to say.

|I'll back you all the way kidcanvas, @3 oh and @4 don't have an embolism|
|@5 Jesus was in south park but I must`ve missed his indoctrination into NAMBLA,you are right from the perspective that religion is a tool to control the masses and is interpreted by the clerics in order to attain their objectives in all religions and politicians use it to further their goals without doubt.|

|The politicians just want human us to fight over religions and kill each other for for the name of religion. Every religion is a religion of Peace no religion teach us to fight or to kill Weather its christian or Muslims we all are humans and want peace|

If islam is a peaceful religion, why are these assholes trying to kill us? And +1 for #2..well said!
Not all humans want peace, and not all religions teach it.
|sounds more like real life baptist minister characters. maybe they were the inspiration for the plot...|
|"Christians do not mind seeing monty pythons life of Brian"|
I'm guessing you weren't around in 1975 when the movie was first released? The Christians of the mid '70s wanted the movie banned and burned for poking fun at their religion.
|^1979, not 1975. I always seem to get 'Holy Grail' mixed up with 'Life of Brian' for some reason.|
|@4 You should watch the Friday Night, Saturday Morning interview if you think Christians didn't overreact over Life of Brian.|
|Ex-Leper: Half a dinare for me bloody life story?|
Brian: There's no pleasing some people.
Ex-Leper: That's just what Jesus said, sir......
