Turkey Tightens Grip Over the Internet

(WSJ): http://online.wsj.com/news/article_email/turkey-tightens-grip-over-the-internet-1410279325-lMyQjAxMTA0MDAwOTEwNDkyWj

      The move effectively broadens February legislation that allowed
      regulators to block websites without a court order according to the
      more narrow definition of privacy violation. That law fueled public
      anger and drew rebukes from Washington and Brussels.  The expanded
      Internet law, which must be approved by President Recep Tayyip
      Erdogan, comes days after Turkey's government hosted a high-profile
      conference on web governance in Istanbul. It is also part of the first
      legislative package since Mr. Erdogan, the former prime minister, won
      the country's first direct presidential elections on a pledge to
      create a "New Turkey."
