YouTube’s Black Sunday

Alex Christie

25 February 2008

Many of you may have noticed the 2 hour YouTube blackout yesterday. It was apparently caused by Pakistan ISPs who where ordered by Pakistan’s telecommunications authority to ban YouTube in the country.

The ban was prompted by a Danish cartoon being uploaded that was deemed offensive to Islam.

Now I’m no techie so don’t understand how the ban in Pakistan affected YouTube almost globally.
