EFF to Jordanian Ministry of Information: Keep the Internet Open | Electronic Frontier Foundation

Jordan is one of a handful of countries in the Middle East that does not censor access to websites.1 Instead, the government has taken a more liberal approach to Internet regulation, and as a result has attracted companies like Google and Yahoo!, both of which have offices in the capital city of Amman.Though in nearly every country there exists a contingent of people that wish for a censored Internet, the Jordanian government has not heeded their calls—that is, until recently, when the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology stated publicly that they were working with an unnamed Australian company to develop a system for filtering pornographic websites. Furthermore, several Jordanian Internet Service Providers ISPs have received letters from the Telecommunication Regulation Commission TRC—which oversees telecommunications in Jordan—directing them to block pornographic websites.
