Ethiopia's government hasn't received the memo about capitalism, free markets and all that jazz. According to Al Jazeera, the Ethiopian government has outlawed Skype and all other VoIP services, including Google Talk. Using any of these services is now punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The law was supposedly passed due to "national security concerns," although experts also say it was also passed to protect the state's telecommunications monopoly. Ethiopia only has one ISP, the state-owned Ethio Telecom, which also filters Internet access, stifles contradicting political opinions and bans links to opposition news outlets.
