Turkey Repeals YouTube Ban

Censorship

Phooey42 writes "Just days after Turkey censored YouTube, the Boston Herald is reporting that Turkey has already lifted the ban. From the article, "The Istanbul court that ordered the site blocked on Wednesday had said it would lift the ban as soon as it ascertained that videos insulting Turkey's founding father, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, were removed." The reason the ban was listed has not yet been given, but presumably the video was removed or they gave in to the immense pressure from the press."
