    In which country your blogging can get you into prison?

    Nay Phone Latt, 29 years old poet and blogger was sentenced to 12 years in prison because he broke the government censorship. What is the name of the country where free blogging is the crime?

    In iran you can get to jail for blogging,In 2005-Tehran has harshly cracked down on the online press as of late. Nearly 20 people have been arrested over the past three months, and two Web journalists, Arash Sigarchi and Mojtaba Saminejad, remain in prison.

    In January, Iran's prosecutor-general ordered that a number of major reformist Web logs be blocked by Internet service providers. Dozens of others have been banned, and Web journalists continue to be harassed, illegally held in solitary confinement and even tortured for offenses the government deems "un-Islamic."

    From the name "Nay Phone Latt," I'd guess it was China. But let's not forget the security crackdown caused by the "War on Terror" here in America. Saying the wrong thing on a blog can get you put away for a long time. Not directly, because we have freedom of speech, but in a round-about way. Let's not forget what happened to the Tech blogger who got his hands on a prototype I-phone and wrote about it.
