ONI Releases Country Study on Yemen

Today, ONI releases the latest in its series of country studies that document Internet filtering by states worldwide. The report on Yemen notes that the state uses filtering technology from an American company, Websense, to control access to Internet content. Yemen's filtering focuses on pornography, proxy servers, gambling sites, and gay / lesbian material. ONI found that filtering by both of Yemen's ISPs increased from 2004 to 2005.
