Blogs Banned In Korea

My brother Simon writes about Blogs Banned in Korea which I read about on GetReligion two weeks ago.

A reader who wrote in to GetReligion says "...In an effort to keep video and images of Kim Seon-il's beheading from entering the country, the government has shut down numerous websites including livejournal, blogspot, and typepad..."

A news article at USAToday mentions (in relation to the killing of Kim Seon-il):

The government also banned domestic Internet portals from showing footage of Kim's beheading and warned it would shut down those that don't comply.

I have also heard this happened in India, where the government restricted some Yahoo sites that were seen to be Pakistan-friendly. What would we do if it happened in Oz? Has anyone experienced this before?
