Google allowed to retain edited anti islamic videos on Youtube

Share

Google was recently ordered by a U.S court to remove an anti-Islamic movie from its website YouTube on a suit filed on basis of a copyright by an actress. Google complying the court orders had started removing the video and its copies from YouTube but  a US Appeal Court yesterday has officially allowed Google to host edited videos on YouTube and eliminate the part of Cindy Lee Garcia.

Garcia had earlier argued that the video existence on Youtube has become a permanent life threat for her.

Due to appearance of this video Youtube is banned in Pakistan since September 17th, 2012. After the recent ruling by the U.S court there are brighter chances that Youtube will be unblocked in Pakistan soon.

A source from Ministry of IT disclosed that PTA, MoIT and Google are thinking on an arrangement to unblock youtube in Pakistan with-in just few weeks.
