Insult Turkey, YouTube gets banned

Turkish court has again blocked access to the popular video-sharing website YouTube because of clips allegedly insulting the country’s founding father. It was the second time Turkey banned the site because of clips deemed disrespectful to Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

It is illegal in Turkey to insult the revered figure, whose portrait still hangs in nearly all government offices nearly 70 years after his death. (link)
