Free speech advocates are celebrating after a court threw out a ruling that had forced a controversial anti-Muslim video off YouTube.
The 2012 short film "Innocence of Muslims" sparked angry demonstrations from Muslims around the world for its portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad.
It was even initially blamed for inciting the 2012 attack on a U.S. embassy in Benghazi, though that attack was later attributed to a specific militant group.
