[News] Censorship at Apple Store and Poland

Hash: SHA1

Apple Censors Dalai Lama IPhone Apps in China

,----[ Quote ]
| Apple appears to have blocked iPhone 
| applications related to the Dalai Lama in 
| its China App Store, making it the latest 
| U.S. technology company to censor its 
| services in China.
| Those apps, which appear in most countries' 
| versions of the App Store, do not currently 
| appear in the Chinese version. Another app 
| related to Rebiya Kadeer, who like the Dalai 
| Lama is an exiled minority leader reviled by 
| China's authorities, is unavailable in the 
| China App Store as well. The apparent 
| censorship comes after carrier China Unicom 
| launched iPhone sales two months ago, making 
| regulatory approval of the phone's contents 
| in the country necessary for the first time.


Poland apparently planning to control Internet much more strictly

| Poland is apparently planning to make its 
| control of the Internet drastically 
| stricter. heise Online Poland, the Polish 
| sister website of The H, reports that the 
| government is working on new legislation 
| already. The new law would create a registry 
| of websites to be blocked and force Internet 
| service providers to hand over detailed user 
| data to investigators, for instance.


What were the worst offences against liberty, democracy and the rule of law in 2009?

,----[ Quote ]
| For most bloggers and hacks, the end of the 
| year is a time to look back at some of the 
| best moments from the previous 12 months. 
| But I'm a miserable bastard. So instead I 
| thought I'd make a list of some of the low 
| points for freedom and democracy in the UK 
| in 2009. I'm thinking of those things which 
| offend against the very notion of a free 
| society; the kind people refuse to believe 
| until you show them the proof.



No internet sex please, we're Indian. Web firms observe new law

,----[ Quote ]
| It may have given the world the Kama Sutra and
| the Bollywood wet sari scene, but it appears
| that India is not yet ready to be exposed to
| the delicate subject of sex on the internet.
