Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear went to a state circuit court to seize 141 offshore gambling site domain names, to release only after they agreed to use a blocking technology to prohibit Kentucky residents from accessing them.[1]
 

Arguments For

Yes, a state should have power to censor sites.

Criminal activity must be controlled.

Arguments Against

No, a state should not have power to censor sites.

This is a direct violation of freedom of speech.
