YouTube video blocked in more countries, as Google faces legal threats

John Ribeiro | Sept. 18, 2012
The number of countries where a controversial movie trailer on YouTube has been blocked increased to five by Monday, as Google ran into legal threats in some of these countries.

YouTube users in the country, trying to view the video, are now referred to a support page that states that the video-sharing site does on occasion block specific content in order to comply with local laws. "For instance, certain Nazi imagery is unlawful in parts of Europe," it added.

Pakistan and Afghanistan have initiated their own blocks of the controversial video.
