But the industry does have to look into the matter and find a way around it. You may find this article quite interesting, since it doesn’t happen often – http://bit.ly/8n6VsO

Comment on Great Australian Firewall to censor online games by James http://cyberlaw.org.uk/2009/06/28/great-australian-firewall-to-censor-online-games/comment-page-1/#comment-48394 Sun, 17 Jan 2010 11:33:35 +0000 http://cyberlaw.org.uk/?p=1739#comment-48394 It saddens me that western countries are critical of China’s Great Firewall when they fail to practice what they preach. The Great Australian Firewall is just another example of western hypocrisy- and just another reason for China to rightly resent the west.

Comment on NZ – Web filter will focus solely on child sex abuse images by Internet Filtering Guy http://cyberlaw.org.uk/2009/07/17/nz-web-filter-will-focus-solely-on-child-sex-abuse-images/comment-page-1/#comment-47208 Sat, 09 Jan 2010 21:33:37 +0000 http://cyberlaw.org.uk/?p=1791#comment-47208 Why many will decry a move like this as censorship, I applaud the use of an Internet Filtering solution in cases like this. There is no reason for images like this to be on the internet of for anyone to view them anywhere anytime under any circumstances whatsoever. Period. Zero Discussion needed. And a filtering system will not only do a tiny part to save future victims, it will act as a deterrent to maybe save an offender from their own actions. I don’t call this censorship, I call this common sense.

Comment on RIPA Part III Section 49 Notices by JFL http://cyberlaw.org.uk/2008/05/02/ripa-part-iii-section-49-notices/comment-page-1/#comment-36574 Tue, 03 Nov 2009 00:45:31 +0000 http://cyberlaw.org.uk/?p=76#comment-36574 JFL is a dozen year pro experienced computer scientist with his own small business in Silicon Valley. He plead guilty in Crown Court, after 3mns remand, to 10counts of RIPA s53 (non-compliance with the one s49 notice). The UK added two ficticious counts of ticking the wrong box on a passport form (CJA 1925 s36). JFL was sentenced for the RIPA offences to 14mns reduced to 9mns for his pleas, in total 13mns, and to serve half. CTC, the terrorism squad, had stopped its investigation into suspected explosives manufacture yet didn’t tell the Judge. JFL had according to the forensic report touched a surface that was contaminated with legal explosives; his $10 model rocket. Any prisoner can be very easily Sectioned under the Mental Health Act. JFL is hoping for release soon now 8mns imprisoned for the Right to Silence. His official complaint has been uptaken by the MPS’ Directorate of Professional Standards. RIPA could never be law in the US due to their 5th Ammendment and is now the law also in CA as Customs case law.

Comment on From Farmville to Gayville, Internet censorship continues in Turkey by Sinan http://cyberlaw.org.uk/2009/10/04/from-farmville-to-gayville-internet-censorship-continues-in-turkey/comment-page-1/#comment-32908 Wed, 07 Oct 2009 13:27:56 +0000 http://cyberlaw.org.uk/?p=2000#comment-32908 I think they withdrew the ban because one of the managerial people’s wife or son likes to play Farmville, and protested after the ban… One man can change everybody’s life if he has the power. It is that simple. Like the good old times…

Comment on At least 6000 websites censored from Turkey by ForensicsMan http://cyberlaw.org.uk/2009/09/22/at-least-6000-websites-censored-from-turkey/comment-page-1/#comment-32863 Wed, 07 Oct 2009 07:14:51 +0000 http://cyberlaw.org.uk/?p=1951#comment-32863 I dont think they are sincere, Some people who appear and say “We care about Internet in Turkey”. If they would actually care about Internet in Turkey, they would do something for qulified Turkish content in Internet! Thay have lots of organisations but what do they do for Turkish Internet content? What do they do for children who learns “Internet=Pornography” in cybercafes? Do they care anything about improving Turkish Internet except making money, except their monetary and political interests? I dont think so! There is no organised campaigns neither governmental nor by these non-governmental organisations; about encouraging people -especially children- about teaching/using/improving qualified Turkish content in Internet!

They should only block sites containing improper content and malicious code but not social networking sites and other entertaining sites.
