* The Coalition States in ''{{Rifts}}'' makes ''literacy itself'' a crime. This is the primary reason why the number one person on their Most Wanted List is an outspoken 65-year-old woman who mostly writes books about her travels and freely teaches and encourages others to read.

* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'' the heroes outright refuse to create a law or a police force to enforce Retroculture. They distrust the government having that much power and intrusiveness into people's lives, and consider it the responsibility of each citizen to monitor and ostracize those using forbidden technology or rap music. This works out much better than ham-fisted enforcement, and they celebrate by tearing down all the modern buildings to erect churches and homes in a more tasteful classical style.

* The final stage of ''EliteBeatAgents'' features a [[AlienInvasion race of music-hating aliens that take over the world]] and outlaw music. Anyone caught singing, dancing, or enjoying music in general gets either TakenForGranite or sent to what is essentially a concentration camp. [[spoiler: However, they didn't do that just because they ''hate'' music, but because music actually ''hurts'' them, which leads to their inevitable downfall as a result of a worldwide rock concert.]]

* In the OrsonScottCard short story "Prior Restraint," a group of time travelers calling themselves the "Censorship Board" manipulate history by preventing certain great writers from publishing their work. Note that this board wasn't portrayed as completely bad -- they did this because the author in question's works would result in the death of millions of people. They actually kept a copy of the work in their library. A rare (slightly) positive portrayal.
