China Blocks iTunes After Olympic Athletes Download Tibet-themed Album

DailyTech – China Blocks iTunes After Olympic Athletes Download Tibet-themed Album

.. LOL

On Monday China’s many internet users began to notice that they were unable to download songs from the popular Apple service iTunes.

Then someone noticed that was the day after Art of Peace Foundation announced the release of “Songs for Tibet,” with music by Sting, Alanis Morissette, Garbage and others along with a 15-minute talk by the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan leader.  Now Michael Wohl, executive director of the New York City-based group, claims he has inside information on why iTunes has mysteriously malfunctioned on Chinese networks.

Mr. Wohl states in a phone interview, “We issued a release saying that over 40 (Olympic) athletes downloaded the album in an act of solidarity, and that’s what triggered it. Then everything got blocked.”
