In collaboration w/ Davide Brunello, we published a new report which examines the blocking of the Gutenberg book publishing website across networks in #Italy based on OONI data.

OONI measurement analysis shows that access to www.gutenberg.org is blocked on at least 7 AS networks in #Italy.

Most ISPs primarily block access by means of DNS tampering.

In blocking www.gutenberg.org, some ISPs in #Italy (e.g Fastweb & Tiscali) return an NXDOMAIN, others (e.g. TIM, Telecom Italia, Iliad) return the IP address 127.0.0.1, while Vodafone Italia returns the IP address 83.224.65.170.

Regardless of what is returned in the DNS response, what all ISPs in #Italy (at least those included in this study) appear to have in common is the lack of transparency of the fact that access to www.gutenberg.org is intentionally blocked.

Internet users just see an error message.
