    There may be no cute cat videos in Egypt for the next month after a court in Cairo ruled Saturday to block YouTube for 30 days. The ruling is in connection with a 14-minute trailer for Innocence of Muslims, an anti-Islam film, found on the site that caused sometimes-deadly rioting throughout the Middle East this summer. Although YouTube restricted access to the video in certain countries, it did not remove the trailer entirely. But don't worry, Egypt, there’s still hope: the ruling can be appealed, and based on previous cases similar to this, it may not be enforced anyway. Long live adorable cat videos!
