* In July 2009, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology voluntarily encouraged computer manufacturers to include a censoring software called "Green Dam Youth Escort", either pre-installed or on CD, with every computer sold, to help "build a healthy and [[MemeticMutation harmonious]] online environment that does not poison young people's minds." Of course, it was plagued by the ScunthorpeProblem in its poorly-written pornography filter (which was so sensitive that it even blocked pictures of {{Garfield}} and pigs, as they have large area of skin tones, and thus appear to be pornography), a password system that was so broken that it could be "cracked by elementary school students", and alleged plagiarism of blacklists and open source code from other software.

* On January 7th, 2016, Creator/{{Netflix}} made a surprise announcement that they have become available globally, and only four countries remaining can't get them. Three of the countries (Syria, Crimea and North Korea) remained blocked due to US embargoes. The remaining country? China, due to the government being uncooperative. However, they mentioned that they're still trying to find ways to do business in China, an indication that this trope is being played straight.
