"TEHRAN, Iran – Iran has blocked access to the popular video-sharing Web site, and a press rights group warned on Tuesday that Internet censorship in the Islamic state is on the rise...

"In October, Reporters Without Borders put Iran in a club of the 13 worst culprits for systematic online censorship along with Belarus, China, Cuba, Egypt, Myanmar, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Vietnam."

Which western tech companies are helping to kill freedom of speech in Iran? It looks like Google has clean hands, but I suspect Sun, Cisco, Microsoft and others have blood on their hands in Iran and the other countries.
