It appears that YouTube's willingness to make an exception to Google's policies and censor the video in Egypt did not go far enough for the Cairo Administrative Court, said civil rights groups Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights and Electronic Frontier Foundation. The groups also criticized Google's decision last year to block access to the video on YouTube in Egypt. "If YouTube was hoping that a little temporary censorship on a volunteer basis would save it from a nation-wide ban on their entire website, it has miscalculated badly," the groups said in a statement.
