The issue at stake here is what some call "common-carrier status" fro networks. Regardless of the excuse - be it China's hatred of protest, Italy's hatred of pædophiles or the USA's hatred of music lovers - governments should be protecting it.

US denies access to its airspace to an Air France flight to Mexico because they consider a radical Latin American journalist on board to be too much of a threat. Clearly the winds of reform have yet to reach this part of the administration.

Exactly how this can be quorate and just for creating a national law that will offer private business the power to cut citzens off from government services as a way to blackmail them into out-of-date business models is a mystery to me. Shameful.
