Google and YouTube file petition for rehearing en banc challenging Ninth Circuit panel's copyright and take-down rulings in Garcia v. Google: I have posted at this link the petition for rehearing en banc filed tonight in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Google and YouTube file brief supporting en banc review of Ninth Circuit's refusal to issue a stay of three-judge panel's take-down order in Garcia v. Google pending action on petition for rehearing en banc of underlying three-judge panel's ruling: You can access the brief in support of en banc review of the order denying a stay at this link. The Ninth Circuit had previously ordered the opposing parties to file their views on this issue no later than today.

[Update: I have posted at this link plaintiff Cindy Lee Garcia's brief in response to the en banc call on the stay order filed earlier today.]

Today is also the deadline for Google to file its petition for rehearing en banc of the underlying three-judge panel's decision, which issued 14 days ago. The rehearing petition will be filed later tonight, I am reliably advised. My initial coverage of that ruling can be accessed here.

It is quite possible that the issue concerning en banc review of the stay denial will fall by the wayside if the Ninth Circuit quickly grants en banc review of the underlying three-judge panel's ruling. In the Ninth Circuit, when en banc review is granted, the effect is to vacate the three-judge panel's ruling.
