Censorship

+ - More websites offending Thai monarchy blocked->

Submitted by
An anonymous reader writes "Thailand is ramping up their media wide censorship of anything that remotely offends Thai royalty. In the last three weeks, another 2,300 websites have been blocked. Another ~4,000 are soon expected. And not just websites, but books as well as the Economist has been blocked: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7851177.stm And anyone caught publishing such material, including foreigners, will get 3 to 15 years in a Thai prison. You don't want to be in a Thai prison! http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7604935.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7836854.stm"
