In my LiveJournal Posting dated May 13th I wrote (and linked)

It's still early, but Herdict may also detect if and when service providers begin violating "Net neutrality" rules by restricting or slowing down access to Web sites depending on which ones they do business with. Herdict is also good at revealing cases of geolocational filtering, such as when YouTube blocks content critical of Thai royalty specifically in Thailand. One of the most inaccessible sites, Herdict has found, is the Australian Broadcasting Corp., which, for copyright reasons, prevents users outside Australia from viewing videos online. In time, Herdict may wake up Westerners to the censorship in their backyards.
