YouTube Ordered to Take Down Anti-Muslim Film (The Associated Press / The Big Story)
A U.S. appeals court ordered YouTube on Wednesday to take down an anti-Muslim film that sparked violent riots in parts of the Middle East and death threats to the actors. The decision by a divided three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco reinstated a lawsuit filed against YouTube by an actress who appeared briefly in the 2012 video that led to rioting and deaths because of its negative portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad. U.S. News & World Report A trailer promoting the film was blamed for murderous rampages in Muslim-majority countries in 2012 and was initially cited by some U.S. officials as the cause of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack that killed U.S. ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi, Libya. Time The appeals court found that the copyright of one of the stars of the video had been infringed upon because the actress, Cindy Lee Garcia, agreed to appear in something other than what was produced. The film, entitled Innocence of Muslims, depicted the prophet Mohammed as a liar and a child molester. “Garcia’s performance was used in a way that she found abhorrent and her appearance in the film subjected her to threats of physical harm and even death,” chief judge Alex Kozinski wrote for the majority court. The Verge It’s well established that most people involved in Innocence of Muslims had no idea they were appearing in a diatribe against Islam.

DreamWorks Co-founder Katzenberg Thinks Hollywood Tonic Is In 3D

katznberg.jpgmadagascar.jpgDreamWorks Animation CEO Jeff Katzenberg brought his dog-and-pony show — the same one he gave to the media boys at Herb Allen‘s Sun Valley Media Conference in July — to Wall Street yesterday.

Wall Street allowed Katzenberg to makes his claims. Maybe, like all overgrown kids, they just liked watching cartoons.

Variety told how Katzenberg offered a bunch of clips from “Madagascar 3″ and stories of opening night jitters for “Shrek, the Musical.”

FBLA, however, was unsure whether the big swinging dicks on Wall Street were forced to wear those crazy 3D glasses.

On you, they look good.
