Zimbabwe will require Internet service providers to block web sites and e-mail that are "objectionable, obscene, unauthorized" or that violate intellectual property rights or other laws of Zimbabwe. It will also require ISPs to immediately provide data to help track any such content. Last year, police arrested 14 people accused of circulating e-mail calling for "violent demonstrations and strikes to push [President] Robert Mugabe out of office".
