Last wee we heard that a Turkish court had decided that the ban of YouTube in Turkey should be removed, although a total of 15 videos would remained banned in Turkey.
That decision has now apparently been revered, and it would appear that Google is now taking the matter up with the Turkish courts.
According to Hurriyet Daily News, Google has filed an individual complaint with the Turkish Constitutional Court regarding the ban.
Google’s lawyer in Turkey, Gönenç Gürkaynak has also appealed the local court decision to reverse the earlier ruling which lifted the ban of YouTube in Turkey last week.
The lawyer also appealed to a local court decision which reversed an earlier ruling that lifted a ban on YouTube on April 5. The Gölbaşı Criminal Court of First Instance said the ban would continue until the “criminal content” was removed.
Gürkaynak previously represented Twitter during talks with the Turkish government after access to the micro-blogging site was blocked.
As yet there is no news on what will happen between Google and the Turkish courts, although Google recently told Engadget that it was “obviously very disappointing”, that YouTube is still being censored in Turkey.
