image for Google Site Banned By Turkish Football Authorities

Google's Blogger site has been in Turkey after it was discovered that some games broadcast live on satellite station Digiturk were being reported live in text form on personal blogs.

This is by no means the first time the country has been involved in a dispute with I.T. giants. From 2008 to 2010, the video-sharing website YouTube was banned as part of a general crack down on piracy by the increasingly paranoid Turkish authorities.

The rights and wrongs of broadcasting football in Turkey has long exercised the minds of legal and media experts.

Scotland has grappled with a similar problem for decades : the rights and wrongs of broadcasting turkeys in football.

Hence the current clamour for playing Old Firm games behind closed doors.
