How to kill the thai internet industry ?
Owner of free picture-hosting site arrested
Published 23 May 2008 Censorship , Weird/Bigotry
Congratulations to the thai authorities. To arrest someone, as the owner of a hosting company, because some pictures -with no link with the owner- were hosted on the website… is simply astonishing.
I mean, if it was a least a political story (like the 29 websites accused of lese-majeste)… but here it’s just a ridiculous case.
And it will without any doubt send a clear sign to the thai internet industry : GET OUT ! Leave the country.
Potentially, all the thai public websites, located in Thailand, are threatened. Just upload a naughty picture… then complain to the police… Et voila.

We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads.

Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
