Turkey bans YouTube... Again

YouTube has once again found itself banned from Turkey for having clips available that insult the first president and founding father Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, marking the second time in less than a year that the popular video sharing website has been banned in Turkey for the same reason.

A Turkish court blocked access to the popular video-sharing Web site YouTube because of clips allegedly insulting the country's founding father, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, according to reports Sunday. It is illegal in Turkey to insult the revered figure, whose portrait still hangs in nearly all government offices nearly 70 years after his death.

Users trying to access the Web site from Turkey were met with notices in English and Turkish saying it was banned under an Ankara court order issued Jan. 17.

In March 2007, YouTube was banned for two days in Turkey for the same reason until the offending videos were taken down.
