  As Apple has gotten the chance to control more and more content with its ever-expanding app store the popular company has shown itself to be somewhat tyrannical and more than a little prudish when it comes to censorship. Books and book apps have gotten caught up in the storm of arbitrary rejections and strange censorship as Apple decides which make the cut into the apparently exclusive Author: Jessie Kunhardt.   I think censorship should be avoided whenever possible, and there are a lot of examples of school boards too eagerly censoring this or that book, often for reasons that have little to do with. The paperback would be the first book the United States attempted to censor prior to its publication. Even today, the “History” section of the book’s Wikipedia page is eerily empty. In most of the cases mentioned above, censorship is merely a diversion, as a censored text’s original bawdiness almost always comes to light.   Censorship in those two countries is more like prevention by official government action of the circulation of messages.

Kuwait relaxes book censorship laws after banning thousands of titles. A person committee previously met twice a month to approve or blacklist all books published in the country, for offences.

  Why, then, is a U.S. human-rights commission promoting international censorship of “hate speech” and advocating for expanding the power of social-media companies to that end?   Don't miss our round up of 10 commonly challenged or banned graphic novels, including Fun Home, in honor of Banned Books Week, which kicked off this Sunday.   Although author Ray Bradbury has been quoted stating that Fahrenheit (Ballentine, ) was not about censorship, the dystopian novel is set in a society where reading is banned and books are burned. This book is found in many high school curricula and is a good starting point for discussion.   In their continuing tradition of altering the scripts of original anime productions during the dubbing process, Funimation has changed a line in their dub of BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense to remove a grade-school level sexual joke.
