wordpress.com block in Brazil

http://wordpress.com/blog/2008/04/30/wordpresscom-in-brazil/

A Brazilian judge ordered that one blog hosted at WordPress.com should be blocked in Brazil. A local ISP association mentioned it would do so via IP address blocking, something that would compromise access to WordPress.com in Brazil and would not block the blog.

WordPress filed a motion on Monday, explaining, in essence: a) how wordpress service works; b) wordpress terms of use and US laws apply to content hosted on WordPress.com; c) wordpress oppose censorship and will not take down the blog  unless it violates wordpress terms of service; d) the best ways to handle the blocking of this blog in Brazil without compromising the access to WordPress.com.
