Judge Hassouna Tawfiq ordered the Egyptian government to block access to YouTube for a 30-day period, with human rights activists calling it a backwards step for internet freedom. The ban had not been enacted by Sunday afternoon, with a Google spokesperson saying that they haven't been served with a takedown order just yet.
