A U.S. appeals court on Wednesday ordered Google Inc to remove from its YouTube video-sharing website an anti-Islamic film that had sparked protests across the Muslim world.
By a 2-1 vote, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday rejected Google's assertion that the removal of the film "Innocence of Muslims," amounted to a prior restraint of speech that violated the U.S. Constitution.
The plaintiff, Cindy Lee Garcia, had objected to the film after learning that it incorporated a clip she had made for a different movie, which had been partially dubbed and in which she appeared to be asking: "Is your Mohammed a child molester?"
Representatives for Google could not immediately be reached for comment.
Cris Armenta, a lawyer for Garcia, said she is delighted with the decision.
"Ordering YouTube and Google to take down the film was the right thing to do," Armenta said in an email. "The propaganda film differs so radically from anything that Ms. Garcia could have imagined when the director told her that she was being cast in the innocent adventure film."
The controversial film, billed as a film trailer, depicted the Prophet Mohammed as a fool and a sexual deviant. It sparked a torrent of anti-American unrest among Muslims in Egypt, Libya and other countries in 2012.
That outbreak coincided with an attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya. U.S. and other foreign embassies were also stormed in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.

I have used Google in a long time. I use Duck Duck Go.
have NOT, long day
Damn the left wing press. STILL peddling the lie that it was a “spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim video.” LONG disproven, and yet they still lie to cover Zero’s backside. Disgusting.
Sparked protests did it?
Nice propaganda, yahoo.
Facts don’t affect their narratives
now we see why the democrats/socialist love Islam so much
Islam is destroying freedom of speech in America
and democrats hate freedom so they love Islam
SO, WHAT ARE THEY UPSET ABOUT? Isn't this the very foundation of their religion?
Misleading headline. This was a copyright infringement case.
OH, so it was a Documentary?
9th circus court.
freedom of speech is dying
without freedom of speech the USA won’t be a free country much longer
i fear for what these socialists/democrats and Islamics will do to this country and our opportunity to even survive or live my life the way i want to
+1 ... not getting hoodwinked.
I was initially puzzled by what might have prompted Ms Garcia to file this legal challenge, since it has nothing to do with "normalizing" illegal immigrants and their ongoing invasion.
This statement makes it all clear.
The Obamamaniac lying scum are just adding to their fantasy defense of the Benghazi debacle, for "the record," such as it is.
I wonder who paid for this legal maneuvering?
Mohammed the prophet of Islam raped many little girls and at the age of 53 mohamad married a 6 year old girl named aisha. this is the whole foundation of Islam as you said:
Religion of peace my arse!
