By Dan Levine SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Google Inc on Friday lost its bid to keep an anti-Islamic film on its YouTube video sharing website while it appealed a federal appeals court order that the company said would have devastating effects if allowed to stand. Earlier this week, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals voted 2-1 to reject Googles assertion that the removal of the film Innocence of Muslims, which sparked protests across the Muslim world, amounted to a prior restraint of speech that violated the U.S. Constitution. In a court filing on Thursday, Google argued that the video should remain accessible to the public while it asks that a larger, 11-judge 9th Circuit panel review the issue. Google called this weeks opinion unprecedented and sweeping. However, the 9th Circuit on Friday rejected Googles request in a brief order.
