  •  Well the OP said that "they just plain don't have (0+ / 0-)

    jurisdiction over the places that are cost-effective to keep porn servers in".  The point is you don't need jurisdiction anymore than Pakistan had jurisdiction over Youtube (though the block/takedown going worldwide was a "mistake").

    •  Sure, a country can block access to any site (0+ / 0-)

      for computers located in that country. China has been doing it for decades. But attacking servers located in another country sounds like a violation of sovereignty.

      •  It's not attacking the servers, it is falsely (1+ / 0-)

        claiming that your servers owns that route.  In the case of Pakistan, they were relying on their upstream provider to filter out the bogus BGP routes which they are under no obligation to do and in that case did not.  Basically, Pakistan said "hey, we own the youtube ip addresses" and the rest of the world's major routers trusted them.
