Thailand: Thailand and YouTube

Thailand Jumped the Shark takes Thailand's information and Communication Technology Minister to task and questioning his wisdom on trying to sue Google for some videos uploaded on Google owned site YouTube. The videos were considered offensive to the Thai King and the minister has earlier unsuccessfully tried to get them erased from YouTube. “Didn't he learn from his mistake the first time? By bringing international attention to this, he is going to make Thailand the laughingstock of the world more than it already it.”
