Just two days after a list of URLs on Thailand’s Internet censorship blacklist were published on WikiLeaks.org, the contents of Denmark’s blacklist has also been published on the same site. According to WikiLeaks the list contains 3863 sites blocked by Danish ISPs participating in Denmark’s censorship scheme as of February 2008. They write in their press release:
The list is generated without judicial or public oversight and is kept secret by the ISPs using it. Unaccountability is intrinsic to such a secret censorship system.
Most sites on the list are still censored (i.e must be on the current list), even though many have clearly changed owners or were possibly even wrongly placed on the list.
How do you feel about these blacklists being revealed?
