SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court said on Wednesday it will reconsider an order directing Google Inc to remove an anti-Islamic film from its YouTube video sharing service.

Earlier this year a three-judge panel on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ordered Google to take down the film, which had sparked protests across the Muslim world. An 11-judge panel will rehear the YouTube case, the court said.
