"A new law in Belarus [the country where I was born] prohibits people from using 'foreign' websites. The law requires that all companies and individuals who are registered as entrepreneurs in Belarus use only domestic Internet domains for providing online services, conducting sales, or exchanging email messages. The tax authorities and the secret police are authorized to investigate violations."

Wow talk about shooting your own people in the foot. I think a lot of governments are scared of the internet for a number of reasons at the moment.
 
This one's almost as bad as China's policy. :-(
 
So I see that Alexander Lukashenko is still campaigning for the "Most Authoritarian Dictator of All Time" award. (I don't think he can win the award -- too much competition [Stalin, etc.]. But that doesn't mean he won't keep trying ...)
 
This is completely unbelievable to me. I'm sure it's true... But unbelievable!
 
Wow. Disappointing. The internet is supposed to transcend political boundaries, but more and more we see it falling in line. :-/
 
+Braudon Bürley Exactly. What both the internet and government have in common is that there are people in both places. We inherently push for control of things and other people, because at the foundation of most of our decision making is fear.
 
Our creator gave us a voice. Our managers don't want us to sing?

We have seen this before right?

woah, that's such a bullshit! Belarus always has been pretty bad with their laws, but somehow it also helped it to develop itself, so I cannot say it's all that bad.

Didn't know you're from Belarus, then we are near neighbors, I am from Latvia. Well, Deutschland isn't that far either though.
