SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Monday ruled in favor of Google Inc over a woman's attempt to remove an anti-Islamic film from YouTube, saying that an injunction that had prohibited the company from broadcasting it should be dissolved.

The ruling, from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, involved the film "Innocence of Muslims."
