    The movie produced in 2004 was asked to remove its scene of humorous Hitler impersonation and rendered the Germans as lacking a sense of humour. Despite the removal, dismay fans has reenacted the scene as new parodies are added over the internet.

Pakistan has lifted the ban on Facebook - 0 views

  •  
    Facebook has apologised for the "Draw Mohammed Day" group and blocked the offending content from being accessed in Pakistan, rather than removing the content.

    I find it interesting that a company has taken responsibility for content published by users, but since they are a publisher of content they should probably be treated in the same way that a news publisher may be treated when publishing content, regardless of whether that content was developed by them or not.

    Brings up the issue of content moderation also.
