OpenNet Releases Middle East and North Africa reports

We (the OpenNet Initiative released our Middle East and North Africa research reports today. Some early press from the report here. We have put up a very useful extended Q and A here.

Among the findings of the report is evidence of the use of commercial filtering products in the region. One of the manufacturers, Websense, restricted its service to two ISPs after our report documented its use in Yemen. You can read more about that here.
