    "The Thai government has banned access to the YouTube video-uploading website after it broadcast material critical of the country's king.

    Communications Minister Sitthichai Pookaiyaudom said the site was banned after a 44-second film showing graffiti over the king's face was aired.

    King Bhumibol Adulyadej, 79, is revered and it is forbidden to insult him. "

    Well since ISPs control which websites are blocked, and the Thailand government is not an ISP... it all depends on if ISPs follow the law.

    I see a bright future for pay-per-view Proxy servers in all the repressive regime countries. :)

    With all of the ISP's starting to ban websites soon there wont be any free content left on the net when the ISP's here begin to follow the others example.
