Turkey accidentally blocks Google’s Blogger
ISTANBUL - Demirören News Agency
The 10th Criminal Court of Peace in Istanbul had issued a ruling on July 24 that blocked Blogger for several hours the following day.
According to cyber law expert Yaman Akdeniz, the court intended to block access to a single blog, which contains customer complaints and criticism against Bilge Adam, a Turkish company that provides education and training services.
“Access to Blogspot resumed only after this error was corrected. This is not acceptable. If the company’s attorney filed the court a wrong URL, the judge or ISPs should have fixed it,” Akdeniz said in a tweet.
Some Twitter users also were surprised that the single blog that should have been blocked was still accessible in Turkey on July 26, as the court fixed the error but its corrected ruling is yet to be executed.
