Banned Hyperlinks, large fines, INKlings

Now, when you ban something you usually have a list of titles of the banned substances so people know what is and isn’t banned.

There’s a list of banned drugs and even banned books. Australia has banned publishing hyperlink links to banned websites. It’s legal to go to the sites, there’s just a $11,000 (Australian money) fine for linking to them.

There can’t be a list of the sites because creating such a list of links would violate the law…

So right there one can say “I didn’t know it was banned” when asked.

This is insane.
