    Here comes china...

    China government has filtered out youtube.. More china traffic on the way

    China's 'Great Firewall' blocks off YouTube


    The Chinese government has blocked its users from accessing video-sharing service YouTube.
    Following reports that access to the site had been cut, a spokesperson from parent company Google confirmed to vnunet.com that YouTube was indeed being blocked.

    "We do not know the reason for the blockage and are working as quickly as possible to restore access to our users in China," the spokesperson said. The company declined to comment further on whether it was speaking with the Chinese government about the matter.

    The block is reported to have stemmed from a recent round of videos depicting protests and police reactions in Tibet. According to the BBC, one particular video depicted a policeman beating Tibetan monks and protestors.

    This is not the first time that YouTube has run afoul of the Chinese government. Last year, similar Tibetan protest videos lead the country to block domestic access to the site.

    Civil rights groups have long been pressuring the country to relax its controls on web content for sites such as YouTube and Wikipedia.

    YouTube has also seen itself the target of censorship campaigns from other governments, such as Burma and Turkey over contentious video clips.

    China always blocks everything. Don't they have restrictions to some MMORPG's too? Something like: Play too long, and your levels star to drop, or something. Too bad for chinese webmasters, who promote their sites via youtube.

    But I do think that this blockage is only temporar. (is that even a word. well, you know what I mean by that ).

    I won't be surprise if Singapore follow suit. So many anti-government videos.

    Not very useful unless you have good advertising targeted to Chinese users.
