Internet content blocking travels downstream, affects unwary users

http://j.mp/Mo1iuM  (ars technica)

   Ron Deibert, who directs the Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global
   Affairs at the University of Toronto, revealed that some Oman Internet
   users using the Omantel ISP are also being subjected to Indian content
   restrictions because of traffic flowing through India.  "It goes to
   show what you can find when you begin to probe beneath the surface of
   the Internet, and what you see when you have governments start to mess
   with the openness of the Internet," Deibert told Ars on Thursday. "In
   this case you have a perverse situation where citizens in one country
   are subject to filtering in another country."
