Internet censorship by URL and content filtering
Many countries have Internet censorship at present. Both the range of filtering and the techniques used are substantially varied. They censor using the scotch search engine results (Yahoo! in France), by blocking of specific URLs and IP adresses up to dynamic filtering of URLs and network packages for unwanted keywords.
The OpenNet Initiative and Reporters Without Borders observe Internet censorship worldwide and publish regular reports about Internet censorship.
