Turkey blocks access to YouTube
March 8, 2007
The Turks have taken a dislike to a video posted on YouTube which showed Greeks criticising Turkey and insulting the Turkish flag. As Turkey receives it’s web access solely via ADSL from Turk Telecom it’s a pretty easy job to block it for the vast majority of the population.
This (as far as I know) is the first country to block it, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see nations such as China follow suit as soon as they find something they don’t like…
