Many Turkish Internet users are very unhappy with the growing level of
censorship online, particularly when it comes to the blocking of Google services.
Earlier this month, services such as Google Translate, Google Docs and Google
Books became inaccessible in Turkey following a request that Turkish ISPs block
access to IP addresses associated with YouTube.
On Thursday, an Ankara Public Prosecutor asked Ankara’s 1st Criminal Court of
Peace to add 44 more IP addresses related to YouTube and Google, and after the
court complied, users started complaining that Picasa and Google Maps had become
impossible to use with more Google services malfunctioning.
