Internet Filters in Library Ban Shakespeare's Play
Not long ago, we reported that the British citizens will have to adjust to much stricter internet censorship in the near future and now a nice new example appears that shows how absurd automatic filters can be.
The British Library (or their WLAN provider, respectively) did really deny access to William Shakespeare's Hamlet. And if that wasn't bad enough already, we talk about the version on the internet site of the prestigious American Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The book was banned by the censorship filter because the story is too violent.
Of course, it was only due to carelessness of technicians and the library hasn't deliberately banned one of the biggest literary works of its own country. But it shows once more how unreliable censorship filters are.
