OpenNet Initiative Investigates Possible Censorship by Apple MobileMe

By: Rebekah Heacock on 15 July 2011

The OpenNet Initiative is thrilled to release a new report detailing our investigation into allegations of political censorship by Apple's MobileMe service:

OpenNet Initiative researchers examined allegations that email messages sent from Appleā€™s MobileMe service are being censored because of sensitive political content. This brief concludes that Apple is not censoring because of political content; messages are likely being dropped because of overzealous spam filtering. However, this issue raises questions about the impact of aggressive spam filtering, the lack of notification to users and the accountability of service providers.
