This screen grab from the website deny.smartpb.net and provided by Censored Planet, a lab at the University of Michigan, shows the website is blocked in Russia. A study by University of Michigan researchers shows Russia is succeeding in imposing a highly effective internet censorship regime across thousands of disparate, privately owned providers in an effort also aimed at making government snooping pervasive. The website address “deny.smartpb.net” translated to English states, “We apologize, but this resource is blocked by decision of state authorities.” The provider includes an ad for wireless television and 30-days free as a gift.
