There's legal reasons and legal reasons. On one hand you've got simple government censorship on the other you've got innocent victims of crap like revenge porn. Don't like it when the two are equated. People get up in arms about government spying, but at least they're not likely to post it all on Youtube.

I'm not sure Error 451 is going to be all that useful.
Most governments just censor sites by blocking them. You'd probably get a 503 (Service Unavailable) or 504 (Gateway Timeout) instead of a 451 in that case.

And I'm not sure a lot of sites are going to implement error 451 for some of their content. If anything, I can see the Japanese returning a 451 every time someone tries to access their sites from outside Japan instead of a 403 (Forbidden), but maybe they won't bother with that either.

in one case, its censorship, in the other its illegal content, not so much censorship.

Definately a step in the right direction.

Then you can get straight on with appealing the decision to censor / take-down, without some basic diagnostics first...

Misleading calling it Censorship.( Fahrenheit 451 was a interesting movie). It could be sites being blocked for illegal movies, tv shows, CHILD PORN, just to name a few. Stop with the delusion freedom = illegal goods.
