The court ruled that the video streaming service should not have been forced to take down an anti-Muslim movie known for sparking violence in the Middle East and leading to death threats to actors.
The court of appeals sided with Google, after the first decision required YouTube to take down the film. The case was launched by an actress Cindy Lee Garcia. She wanted Innocence of Muslims removed from YouTube after receiving death threats. She claimed to own a copyright of the low-budget movie, as she believed that she was actually acting in a different production.
In response, YouTube argued that the actress could not own the copyright to the video, because the movie producer wrote the dialogue, managed the production and dubbed over her lines.
Innocence of Muslims indeed inspired rioting by the Muslims who considered it blasphemous to the prophet Muhammad. Even the US President and other world leaders asked the company to take the movie down. However, YouTube pointed out that such requests amounted to censorship, and this position was supported by an unusual alliance of moviemakers, other tech giants and major news media organizations. The defendants didn’t want the court to alter copyright legislation or infringe on first amendment rights. The problem is that the online industry was concerned that they could be besieged with takedown notices, even despite the fact that it could be hard to contain the movie that is still found online.
YouTube argued that if a bit player in a film has copyright privileges, it could also extend to minor characters in blockbusters, shatter copyright law and ultimately restrict free speech, as in this case anyone unhappy with their performance could request to remove it from the Internet.
A lawyer representing Cindy Lee Garcia previously said the extraordinary circumstances justified the extreme action of a court injunction against the popular streaming service, because the actress remained under threat of death if she failed to remove the movie.
The actress explained that she was paid $500 for acting in a movie called Desert Warrior with absolutely different scenario. But it ended up with a 5-second scene in which her voice was dubbed over and her character asked if Muhammad was a child molester. The moviemaker was sent to prison in 2012 and released on probation in 2013.Posted by: Date:

|this movie should be played at schools worldwide once a week.|
|Muhammed IS a child rapist who claimed that 'Allah' said to him that it is ok for grown men to marry AND have sexual interactions with 9 year old girls, only so that he could continue his own filthy practices towards children! He was a filthy, vile, and savage Pedophile PIG, wich the Islamic religion used as a base foundation and building block to found their entire religion upon! LMAO xD|
How can anyone take any religion seriously that condones (even actively supports) grown men to have sex with little girls! Anyone who even remotely condones or supports adult men to marry and have sex with young children is a f*#king retard Jihadist, and deserves to die a slow, painfull and agonizing death! I make no difference between someone who supports this adult man-child girl marriage and a full blown retard Jihadi terrorist, all of the same vile and savage kind!

|Amen @2...But as you can see too many people are too politically correct. It's time to stand for what we believe, say it the way it is and to hell with the sugarcoating. If these a$$holes want to go to their 72 virgins...hey..I'd more than happy to arrange the meeting!|
|My Dear Brothers we Proud to be Muslim and Hazrat Mohammad (P.B.U.H)is our last prophet, we are living in peace n harmony, who make that movie n why... what is his mission... we are not spitting on your religion so please kindly dont write or think negative about us ... making movie or media both have one eye to cature...(one sided) reality is not shown what ever you want you record by own think about it ... hope you get my point sorry if i said wrong.|
|"YouTube argued that if a bit player in a film has copyright privileges, it could also extend to minor characters in blockbusters, shatter copyright law and ultimately restrict free speech," Sounds familiar huh?|
Kinda sounds like bitter medicine for the trolls and their masters. Shattering the copyright laws could only be an improvement.
|The western world has the biggest Pedophiles.. your so called superstars pop stars etc go around raping children.. even your damn churches aren't safe so you jewish butt kissers need to calm down about islam. MUSLIMS ARE NOT PERFECT BUT ISLAM IS.|
No 1, 2, and 3 don't have a clue what islam is about.. they only know what the media fed them.

|If we comment here, or any other place for that matter, is because we (I) know what islam is. I have lived/worked in muslim countries most of my life.|
So, I stand for what I believe and know. The media can kiss my a$$.
We still have freedom of speech (more or less), so I will exercise that right.
Islam is nowhere near perfect, it's an abomination.

|DarkmanDarker - Get off your high throne; Islam and Muslim have never been and will never be perfect they are both children and Female haters from the day they were invented ; both abominations|
on the planet never to be accepted .
|Rockman – I know i’m going to waste my time here justifying islam but all i want to say is that you are mistaken.. it makes me wonder if you have been sitting in front of a television watching the news for to long. Your claims are so so wrong regarding women and children. Mate, all you have to do is a little research FOR YOURSELF regarding islam. Like i said before, islam is perfect but muslims are NOT. I’m a muslim but i hate certain muslim countries who kill on the name of islam, i have studied the quran in english many times and trust me it does not promote violence against women or children. Its actually forbidden to hit any man woman or child.. you can only use violence in a war situation where you would kill the enemy like everyone else would.|
Wouldn’t it be stupid of me judging Christians and all of the western world based on what i see on the Jerry Springer or the Jeremy Kyle show ? (i have more sense not too)
The media will NEVER show you the positive side to islam or muslims.. (its the way to the NEW WORLD ORDER) run by Israel / America
All this islam hate went out of control with 9/11 which anyone with a brain will know it was an inside job. Rockman, you have the internet at you hands.. find out the info yourself rather than being a puppet on a string that the media pulls.
I’m not going to comment on this subject any further because i know you have a set mind on being islamophobic.
|MUSLIMS > ARE > NOT > PERFECT > BUT > ISLAM >IS! AND YOU CAN BELIEVE THAT|

|"Haters" is NOT an English word...if you cannot express yourselves without recourse to phrases made up by the poorly educated and lazy then I'm afraid your argument holds very little water. ALL three of the major religions have flaws and ambiguities that those of a certain mindset will interpret in whichever way suits their designs. Is ANY organised group perfect? Are there ANY without either the capacity for misunderstanding and/or manipulation? Please remember that all three of the Abrahamic religions have superseded and in most cases persecuted and obliterated the religions that came before them, remember Paganism or Zoroastrianism anyone? No-one is perfect and the sooner mankind solves it's individual faults before dealing with the religious beliefs of another person or group then maybe we can progress as a species. Personally I think religion can benefit those that wish to believe in it even though it could be seen as nothing more than "Life After Death Insurance". As for myself I believe that the sun comes up, then goes down which is as much as I wish or feel qualified to speculate on. But the romantic in me still believes that Salem Aleykum (apologies for any spelling error there) is the most poetical of greetings and that the Call To Prayer IS a wonderfully evocotive sound. I can also say I've NEVER heard an unkind word from a Jew and I've sat having a beer Christians who sit with tears rolling down their faces during "Life Of Brian". Life is difficult enough without us adding fuel to fires that should've burned out long ago. My apologies for going on too long.|

|The major religions (Christianity, Islamism, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism) are used as tools by the rich and powerful to control and motivate the masses. The masses cling to religion because they can't face their own mortality and/or because it has been pounded into their heads from birth. You have to have rocks in your head to believe Mary was a virgin, or any God wants you to kill. Wake up and join the real world.|
