According to the recent news, an American appeals court will think once again whether Google must remove an anti-Islamic movie whish sparked protests across the Muslim world from YouTube. Earlier in 2014, a 3-judge panel on the US court of appeals sided with an actress featuring in the movie and ordered Google to take the film down. The recent news is that an 11-judge panel will now rehear the case.
The woman who launched the case was Cindy Lee Garcia. She objected to the movie after learning that it incorporated a clip which she had made for another film, partially dubbed and where she appeared to be saying: “Is your Mohammed a child molester?”
A few days ago, Garcia’s attorney confirmed that her legal team would continue to advance her copyright interests, along with her right to get rid of death threats. In respond, Google said that it is happy with the decision to agree and re-examine the case, because the company strongly disagreed with the original ruling.
Earlier, a 9th circuit panel by a 2-1 vote rejected the tech giant’s assertion that the removal of the movie known as “Innocence of Muslims” would amount to a prior restraint of speech that infringed the constitution of the United States. The court decision in question has also raised questions on whether actors may have an independent copyright on their individual performances in some cases. A number of companies, such as Twitter, Netflix and the ACLU, supported Google and filed court papers opposing that idea in order to urge the court to rehear the case.
As you may know, the controversial movie, billed as a trailer, depicted the Prophet Muhammad as a fool and a sexual deviant. The film is known to have sparked waves of anti-American unrest among Muslims in Egypt, Libya and other countries a couple years ago. In the meantime, that outbreak has also coincided with an attack on American diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, which killed 4 US citizens, including the American ambassador to Libya. Of course, for most of Muslims, any depiction of the prophet is blasphemous.
Google arguments in court were that Cindy Lee Garcia appeared in the movie only for 5 seconds, and that while the actress might have legal claims against the director of the movie, who didn’t reveal what kind of material is being shot, she shouldn’t win a copyright lawsuit against the tech giant. Google claimed that the “Innocence of Muslims” has now become an important part of public debate and shouldn’t be taken down from YouTube.

|It is very important to make public what is seen in the video and after all is not so bad idea to go public because nothing is lost if not the other is gained to know also of the protagonists in the video either for safety and so feel themselves useful to the whole problem that they went without knowing in advance what was gonna happen.|

|80 percent of the problems on this planet are caused by religion.Use to be a peacekeeper I have seen first hand what people willing do to each other in the name of there god Religion is a farce|
|I think is funny all the north americans criticizing Isla for being violent, when they murdered thousands and thousands of children and rape countless women "in the name of God" and for freedom in Germany (is a historic fact that they use german girls as "relief" to war "stress", american woman visiting have to use uniform of officials soo they were assalted), in Vietnam (May Lay anybody remember that anymore??), Korea, Kwait, Afghan, Iraque (the famous rally rapes where soldiers put women and girls in warehouse for a weekend long of continuos sexual assalt)|
|I think that any PRO-HATE content is terrible content and should be forbbided, is the same thing with feminism, they say that muslins promote subjugation of women, BUT REALLY what those bitches need chance to speak?? To offend male role in society and say that we are trash and afeminate all the men to them humiliate and reject those same dude for "not being real men". Aaaaff! Be real thoose skanks SHOULD be subjugated, why we should give the power to speak if they will only speak shit about us and not actualy help in nothing to make things better.||
