Internet jurisdiction attempt, the Istanbul way


Not the finest hour for Turkey in its continued efforts to defend national identity.

1. Turkish court banned YouTube on Wednesday, March 7th. Turk Telecom, the largest ISP in the country enforced the ban, by  what appears to be at the network level by blocking any traffic to the website.

2. It then lifted the ban two days later on Friday, but not before the story had been picked up widely in the Western press.
