Flickr goes to Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong and Korea: the struggle for freedom of speech

Users from Germany, Singapore, Hong Kong and Korea were surprised to find out that, according to the local versions of the Service Use Agreement, they cannot turn off image filtering themselves (SafeSearch). And if the account Yahu (to which the account in Flik is attached) was created in one of these countries, then by default the filtering level is set to the safest, that is, excluding any appearance in the lists of photos of any naked people, as well as too ambiguous or shocking scenes . Even if the user manages to get a link to such a forbidden photo, then still it will not be viewed.
