Indonesia to Facebook, Google, and Twitter: Pay taxes or we’ll block you

With the new regulations, authorities aim to not just collect taxes, but to also better control pornography and terrorism-related content. In January terrorists linked to ISIL attacked civilians and police in the capital Jakarta. And authorities recently blocked all Tumblr sites because of porn, though it backtracked after protests. They also nudged Japanese messaging app Line into removing LGBT-themed virtual stickers from its local store, part of a growing anti-gay movement in Indonesia.
