Internet regulations: From the US to Australia


Singapore adopts a combination of licensing controls and legal pressures to regulate internet access and to limit the presence of objectionable content and conduct online.

In January 2006, a twenty-one-year-old was also charged with violating the Sedition Act after he posted four cartoons of Jesus on his blog.

In November 2006, Singapore Democratic Party activist Yap Keng Ho was sentenced to 10 days in jail after he refused to pay a fine for speaking at an illegal SDP rally, held in April 2006. Yap had posted a video of the speech on his blog and was ordered to remove it by a judge.
