` Ankara Court over turns ` YouTube ` Ban but allows blockage of 15 Specific Videos ‘

#AceBreakingNews – ANKARA – April – Ankara court ordered a Turkish government ban on YouTube to be lifted, but allowed the blockage of 15 specific videos to remain in place.

The move comes after a similar overturning of a government ban of Twitter.

The court in the capital Ankara said the YouTube ban was too broad and instead specifically blocked access to 15 videos, a copy of the court document showed, as Reuters reports.

Unlike the decision on Twitter, the ruling on YouTube was not taken by Turkey’s constitutional court and may be overruled by a court of higher jurisdiction.

This means that in practice the video hosting service will remain blocked for now, pending a likely government appeal. RT
