Ninth Circus Court Orders Google to Remove Anti-Muslim Movie from YouTube

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I'm gonna tell you something gonna be interesting to watch out there, folks. I have this story right here in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers. It is from the Associated Press. "A US appeals court..." That would be the US Ninth Circus Court of Appeals. "A US appeals court ordered YouTube," owned by Google, loved by the Regime. Google and Regime are inseparable, except -- except -- the Ninth Circus has ordered Google, through its YouTube subsidiary, "to take down an anti-Muslim film that sparked violence in many parts of the Middle East and death threats to the actors."

What's this? A business, Google, can be forced not to serve a customer -- that would be the YouTube uploader here -- because it might offend somebody's religious beliefs? This is a perfect example. I'm gonna spell this out for you. Just hang in there, because this is a perfect example of how some religious beliefs are more equal than other religious beliefs. You have a business here, Google.

They are now being forced by the government not to serve a customer, the YouTube uploader, the video maker, because it might offend someone's religious beliefs, and the Ninth Circus is basing this on an actress who's only in the movie for five seconds, in a trumped-up lawsuit. It has nothing to do with that, however. Even the Ninth Circus admits this isn't the way the Digital Millennium Copyright Act takedown orders work. Here's why this is happening.

President Obama told the UN back in February of 2012, quote, "The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam," quote/unquote. That's Obama two years ago at the UN in September. Google says they're gonna fight this all the way to the Supreme Court. They don't want the government telling them what they can and can't upload --especially when they're Google. They're blue and the Regime is blue. So we got a little blue-on-blue action here, and it's gonna be fun to watch this.

"YouTube resisted calls by President Barack Obama and other world leaders to take down the video, arguing that to do so amounted to unwarranted government censorship and would violate the Google-owned company's free speech protections." Google says: Hey, you want to post something on YouTube? As long as you own the rights to it, have at it. We have freedom here.

But here comes the Regime. Ah, ah, ah, ah! As Obama said, "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Even you, Sergey, and even you, Larry!" That's Sergey Brin and Larry Page, the founders.

in a copyright case with the right evidence, the court can award copyright damages if they wish, but they cannot stop publication

One can denigrate and slander Christianity, but don’t, don’t ever, ever, even appear to be slandering Islam;
ever.

So have copies of the file been removed from YouTube pending the appeal of the verdict, or does it stay up pending the appeal? I can’t find it. I watched it previously at the beginning of the controversy, but didn’t bookmark it. Now when I search for “The Innocence of Muslims” at YouTube, all I find so far are responses.

The film itself rather bored me, but this is an important freedom-of-speech issue. Other religions are subject to criticism and satire. Islam should be too. Anybody have a YouTube link to the film?

“copies of the file” should be “copies of the film”

When I access that YouTube link, I get this screen -- "This content is not available in this country domain due to a legal complaint." It appears that they've managed to ban the film in the United States pending the appeal.

Thanks for trying to give us access to the film (and I understand Spanish, by the way), but apparently we’re not understanding each other. Are you in a U.S. domain? When I access the link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EXwbwu8F8rI&bpctr=1393558071 — “Mohamad Movie Trailer 2 Espanol”) and also the link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xx3gvPSH0bk — Parodia a Mahoma - Demasiado Tarde con Nicolas Copano), I get the screen with the message I posted. It appears that people in different countries are seeing different things.

That’s funny, I’m allowed to see it and you’re not.

Methinks it’s been removed to protect the woman who would be president if she could be. The whole video story was a load of BS.

So if Christians responded with violence to the incessant offensive blasphemous material the media spews out, then the 9th would also ban it?

It's called Editorializing...

Your information PROVIDER decides what OU get access to...


It doesn't happen in THIS country! /s

Actually it’s the U.S. court deciding what we Americans get to see on the internet. The court ruling applies only to the United States. YouTube reads the domain location of the person trying to access the video, and shows it to people in places where it hasn’t been banned, but not to us in the United States.

The U.S. court used the phony pretext that somehow the actress making the complaint owns the copyright.
