Egypt Knocks Out YouTube

by John on 02/09/2013

An Egyptian court has ordered YouTube to be blocked in the country.

The Egyptian government claims that a video offensive to Islam is the reason.

But many young protesters claim it’s the government effort to stop protests that are fueled by YouTube videos which allow protesters to share what they’re doing.

This will be interesting.  After all, Google, which owns YouTube, has caved to censorship by China.  Just this week, Eric Schmidt called China the world’s biggest hacker.

Politics and business continue to collide in this new open sharing world.
