Google fights ‘Innocence of Muslims’ takedown order in copyright battle

Google is fighting a court order that requires it to take down all copies of inflammatory anti-Islam video Innocence of Muslims. On Thursday, the company filed an emergency motion that would allow it to keep the video available until a final decision is made in a copyright case involving one of the films actresses. Earlier this week, two judges from the Ninth Circuit declared that Cindy Lee Garcia, who played a bit part in what she believed was a film called Desert Warrior, would likely succeed in her attempt to sue Google and YouTube for copyright infringement and could suffer irreparable harm if it was left up. Google has removed the video, but it argues that letting an actor own the video in which they appear will cause irreparable harm to First Amendment rights.
