YouTube has blocked access to anti-Islamic film Innocence of Muslims in
Saudi Arabia following a demand by Saudi ruler King Abdullah.

The government had said it would block access to the entire YouTube website
if owners Google did not comply.

Google had rejected a request from the White House to remove the film, but
has already blocked access to it in Libya, Egypt, Indonesia and India.

Just curious, how does Google
block access to a country?  Use
the country code?

How to prevent the same item from
coming in from a dozen different
directions?  i.e., just not from Google?

Not clear how even a country itself
stops this, other than with some
hopeful filtering.
