An appeals court ordered Google to remove all copies of the infamous “Innocence of Muslims” from YouTube, a shoddy anti-Islamic video that spurred widespread protests in 2012. The court opinion was issued on Wednesday.
The ruling, which issues a temporary takedown, comes after an actress who briefly appeared in the video — Cindy Lee Garcia — filed a copyright complaint, arguing she had signed up for a different video. In a 2-1 vote, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with Garcia and granted a preliminary injunction, ordering Google and YouTube to remove all copies of the video
