FIFA World Cup John Doe Order: In July this year, as many as 472 websites including Google Docs, Google Video and Google’s URL shortener goo.gl were blocked in the country, following a complaint from MSM that had the official mobile, Internet and television broadcasting rights for FIFA World Cup 2014.

The list was later revised to 219 websites after ISP’s appealed and the new list didn’t include any Google websites. Strangely however, the blocks weren’t removed even two weeks after the World Cup 2014 ended.
