YouTube access blocked in Turkey

Share this article:
YouTube users have been blocked access in Turkey because of videos "insulting the founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk."

Turk Telekom, Turkey's largest telecommunications provider is already enforcing the ban.  This comes during a year-long US TV campaign promoting the Mediterranean country led by the Turkish Tourism Ministry.

We will have to see how YouTube and Google will respond to this.  It is interesting how Google fought against China's censorship laws, but caved in to keep from shutting out the emerging market.
