    YouTube Censors Thailand



    Bowing to pressure from countries like Thailand, YouTube are not now blocking certain videos depending on which country you are in. If you are in Thailand, you will sometimes get the above message which says "this video is not available in your country".

    More information here:

    Please don't reply suggesting we should use a proxy or even with instructions on how to use a proxy as that is now illegal in Thailand. We could end up in prison if we allow discussions on how to circumnavigate blocked websites.

    Yeah, just in time for the Olympics.

    I wouldn't read this as a portent of freer access to come.

    Anyway, the Chinese have already been able to access western web sites. But all internet traffic goes into China in only about 3 or 4 places (i.e., 3 or 4 main cables), which makes it possible for all of the traffic to be monitored (and it is indeed monitored).

    There was a good article about this in the last Atlantic Magazine. Here it is, in case you're interested.
