For demands that come from Pakistan, Russia, and Turkey, we geoblock the specific content or site(s) at issue, so that WordPress.com remains otherwise accessible in the country. You can read a bit more about our approach to those kinds of takedown demands here.
Here are a few recent examples of takedown demands that we received:
- A representative of the State of Alaska requested we takedown a site that has content alleging state trooper corruption.
- The Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (ROSKOMNADZOR) demanded the removal of a post about freestyle soccer balls from a personal blog site.
- The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority demanded the removal of a post from a site that contains content critical of the Pakistani government.
