YouTube Partially Unblocked in China

Censorship 1

hackingbear (988354) writes "After China unblocked certain sensitive keywords in search engine baidy.com last week, YouTube is now partially, quietly unblocked (Google Translate.) Users inside China can, without bypassing the Great Firewall, visit the site, search for sensitive keywords, and see uncensored results and comments. The videos themselves, including those not related to politics, remain blocked, however. Given that the Chinese government likes to make major changes in gradual, experimental steps, it is unclear what this round of Internet loosening will lead to eventually. At the meantime, many netizens in the country express their welcome of the moves as a good start through microblogging."

Ridiculous (1)

Pretty ridiculous they can't get YouTube in China. Twitter, Vimeo, and a bunch of others have been blocked for a while too. Maybe this is a start of that changing.
