Thailand convicts Webmaster for posted site comments

http://j.mp/KwEzjC  (New York Times)

    court's decision to convict the webmaster of an Internet message board
    for comments posted by users that insulted the Thai royal family."

governments want to control Internet content. They vary in their

enables, fundamentally undermines traditional information control
