The YouTube clip that started riots in the Muslim world  been banned in Brazil and the CEO of Google’s Brazil Operations Fabio Coelho was arrested yesterday in São Paulo for ignoring Brazilian local judge court orders and for not removing the Anti-Islamic clip “The Innocence of Muslims” and other violent videos from YouTube.
The story is that a local Brazilian judge Mato Grosso do Sul had issued a ten days notice to the Google’s Brazilian CEO to remove the Anti-Islamic video and several other violent clips of abortion and rapes from YouTube but the orders were ignored by the Google administration.
The judge then not only issued arrest warrant but also ordered to ban YouTube for whole one day in the state of São Paulo, citing the CEO as responsible for Google’s failure to take down certain videos critical of a mayoral candidate. However, the exact date of one day YouTube blockage has yet not been confirmed.
