Google Joins Twitter in Country-Specific Censorship

 

 

Google announced three and 1/2 weeks ago that it would be redirecting blogger traffic based upon the viewer's country, which will make it easier for Google to censor content on a country-by-country basis.

In other words, if you try to view Blogspot.com from India, your browser will automatically be redirected to Blogspot.in (a redirect which is already taking place for Indian users).

"Migrating to localized domains will allow us to continue promoting free expression and responsible publishing while providing greater flexibility in complying with valid removal requests pursuant to local law." — Google support
