Internet Censorship!

I went to Ebaumsworl today to catch some funny videos and I see they are now being forced to censor their clips and rate them like videogames and tv shows. This censorship was brought on by a religous website. http://regulatetheinternet.com/ That website claims that this is a victory for families and a victory for GOD. The group was supported by the http://irlb.org/ .

To see the censored clips and uncensored back to back, go here.

How can they be "forced to censor their clips"? It's the internet, after all.

Do the ratings change the content of the clips? If not, what's wrong with knowing what you're in for?

I don't think ratings is censorship. Rating the movies isn't censorship. It tells you what's in the movie as per violence, language, sex, and other things you might not want your child to see. The same for clips on the Internet.

Seemed fairly obvious if you actually watched the "censored" ones.
