And Now Pakistan Bans YouTube Again... Let's Hope It Doesn't Take Down Half The Internet This Time
from the maybe-don't-visit-sites-you-don't-like dept
Now it's been announced that Pakistan is blocking access to YouTube over the same issue. Of course, Pakistan tried to block YouTube a few years ago, and it ended up taking down a large chunk of the internet -- so hopefully this time they've come up with a more sophisticated way of doing this. In the meantime, though, I'm still at a loss for how completely banning a site makes sense here, but it appears my original post somehow is being spread around Pakistan, because starting not so long ago there was a sudden rush of comments coming from people in Pakistan, defending the blocking decisions. Given that, how long until Techdirt gets blocked as well?
