Google’s Blogspot: Banned!


Approximately 600,000 Blogspot users in Turkey have been left high and dry because their country has imposed a ban on this popular site. This is primarily because Turkish Super League football matches have been streamed and shown on the site for free and this is just not acceptable to some companies, especially Digiturk, a satellite TV company.

It has filed a copyright violation complaint in the Turkish courts saying that the matches that it broadcasts have been appearing on the site. As a result, Google’s Blogger/Blogspot has been blocked in its entirety.
