YouTube banned in Thailand

The Thailand military government has banned access to YouTube because of a 44-second video which is considered derogatory to the King. It included a juxtaposition of a pair of woman's feet over the King's head. YouTube's owner Google Inc. has refused to take down the video and the Thai Information and Communications Technology Ministry (ICT) has stated YouTube access will be denied in the country until the video is removed.
