    Plenty of news sources, especially more local US ones, decided to do that for a lot of European countries rather than deal with the many and varied laws in Europe.

    'censorship' is 10 letters, and thereby not a 'little' word. :P

    It is not really censorship. The newspapers are allowed to say what they are saying still. It is more that compliance with the laws is more hassle than it is worth for them, and presumably if they are owned by a bigger corporation (because most are) then that could probably have trouble down the line. As the presumed number of people in France caring about the events of nowhere, Oklahoma is probably pretty minimal and their advertisers care even less then it is the easy route.

    I can't say it is a good thing, most of the laws causing it being a solution in search of a problem, but it is understandable, and still not censorship. Now the EU does have some fun censorship woes going on (your country doing a fun one recently with the lady that called the Islamic prophet a kiddy fiddler, and her getting slapped as a result going all the way up) but this is not that.

    They are not having their message prevented from being sent/sanctioned for said message. If they wanted to start a subsidiary, or pay a legal type and site designer to go over the privacy policy and make the site changes then they could do that happily enough. The couple of thousand that would probably cost would not likely make a return any time soon, and might have to be revisited in a year or so when the next rule comes in.
    Functionally it is similar to how my business website I have not had translated to Estonian because the effort there would probably be more than any would be non English speaking Estonian clients would ultimately make me, and it is not otherwise worth it for advertising purposes.

    and yet jackasses like gee, every liberal running for office, want more government control and more laws. They like EU laws. They want the US to follow EU standards. I guess they forgot the entire point people come to the US since even before it was a country: to get away from this shit control. The US was founded to not follow Europe standards...

    Just use the onion to view sites. I bet they will ban networks like tor..... Its for your own safety dont you know...

    Ray bradbury. Fahrenheit 451. Book burning. Censorship. Not the same, but related, somewhat. Was the first thing I thought of.

    I thought something like this would happen to the UK first, because of their "nanny state" internet laws, lol.

    Neither was GWB. The Republican party has nothing to do with being pro-small government any more.
