Banned in Pakistan, and the Rest of the World

|

Pakistan's Telecommunication Authority blocked access to YouTube because someone had placed a trailer for an upcoming film by Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders on the site. The film reportedly will argue that the Koran inspires "intolerance, murder and terror." YouTube later removed the trailer, saying it violated the site's terms of use. But before that happened, Pakistan's efforts to censor YouTube reportedly led to the site being unavailable across the globe for several hours.
