both reports form the papers seem to be a little propagandistic to me
I don't buy for a second
"the ban was lifted Thursday after a combination technological and legal solution was reached, with YouTube developing a modified filter technology which allows it to screen materials available in Thai cyberspace.

According to Minister Sittichai, sensitive YouTube videos will not be accessible to Thai internet service providers. "


I think the ban lift has more to do with the ITC Minister loosing his power to censor (had to did deep to find this one)

The rulering came down as the ITC minister doesn't have theright to censor on the the courts do.

After I hit "Submit post" I realized what I said isn't exactly clear.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but its true that it appears that the ITC has "taken away the" Thai Military power to censor (which military had done in a hamfisted way); only to replace it with ITC's own more nuanced yet equally effective censorship.

Basically the ITC hasn't gone against the will of the military, don't think they'd dare.
