I don't know how far the news have spread outside the Nordic countries:

A Danish publishing house was marketing an E-book through the Apple store, a historical walkthrough of the hippie movement of the 1960-70s, illustrated with lot of photos. This is Denmark, which means that pictures showing certain body parts were not necessarily (if at all) censored by the publishing house.

Once Apple discovered this, they censored if, of course. Distribution of the book was stopped immediately.

So the publishing house submitted a revised edition to the Apple store: Every t*t, every a*s, every c**k and c**t, was hidden behind bright red apples...

After four days, the Apple store finally understood that their censorship was being ridiculed, and they stopped distribution even of the book with the apple censorship applied...

The pictures are shown in both censored and uncensored versions on hippienu.dk/node/345 - maybeis not available to readers everywhere due to censorship. Warning: Some readers may not want to see these pictures, even if they are available from a technical viewpoint. The collection does contain the uncensore versions, too! Be careful, if you are of the sensitive kind!

(All this banning and censoring and new banning took place last week.)
