YouTube Banned in Egypt for a Month, as Punishment for Hosting “Innocence of Muslims” Video

AhramOnline reports:

Egypt’s administrative court on Saturday ordered the ban of YouTube in the country for a month for not removing the controversial anti-Islam film, The Innocence of Islam.

The court’s verdict also applies to any website that aided in the sharing of the 13-minute film….

The AP reports much the same, though adds that, “the ruling can be appealed and, based on precedent, may not be enforced.” I’m not quite sure what the latter part means — is it that Egyptian precedent makes this ruling legally unenforceable, or is it that in the past similar rulings have been ignored? — and the AP story does not elaborate.

Thanks to Prof. Howard Friedman (Religion Clause) for the pointer.
