Google Bends To Thai Government?

They might not want to bend over for Viacom, but in light of recent trouble with the Thai government or for a wanting of some peace surround recent YouTube law suits, Google have decided to ‘draw the line‘ over 12 videos that appeared on YouTube deemed insulting to the King of Thailand or the Thai government.

Four of the videos in question were pulled in breach of Thai law, six were removed by their previous uploaders while two of the videos remain on YouTube, Google deeming they haven’t broken the law.

Not a bit pointless seen as YouTube is already unavailable in Thailand and Google and some of the major players are already heavily censored in the far east? Think the Irish government would kick up a storm about videos like this, or this?
