Net Censorship in India

leave a comment »

Boing Boing reports that the Indian government has apparently supplied Indian ISP’s with a list of sites to be blocked, including blogging sites Blogspot and Typepad. The blocks were allegedly initated by the Indian intelligence agencies because terrorists were using blogs to communicate. As is noted on Boing Boing:

Not only is this useless (because the terrorists can simply use proxies), it’s akin to shutting off the country’s telephone service because terrorists talk to each other through phones.
