Several UK blogs taken down after legal threats

There is an uproar in UK blogs after several blogs where taking down by ISP following threats of legal action from Uzbek billionaire, Alisher Usmanov, a major Arsenal shareholder. Craig Murray, a former British ambassador to Uzbakistan, wrote a post against the billionare, a law firm complained to the ISP - fasthosts - about the content of Murray's blog. The ISP took down Murray's account but with it also a number of other blogs who shared the same account. More details on here.

It is interesting how easy it seems to shutdown a blogger in the UK.
