Cat Can't Scratch It
- May 9, 2000
As a reprisal for YouTube refusal to completely remove a trailer for a banned movie, the Egyptian Court has ordered a 30 day blockage of all YouTube access in Egypt. The movie in question was Innocence of Muslims, a film that caused riots in several countries last September.
YouTube's parent company, Google, declined to remove the video from the website last year, but restricted access to it in certain countries, including Egypt, Libya and Indonesia, because it says the video broke laws in those countries.
