URL change

Just noticed that blogger has moved the URL for this, and I assume many other blogs, onto a UK address.

    atoryblog.blogspot.com -> atoryblog.blogspot.co.uk
If the blog is now hosted int he UK rather than the US it could have a number of key legal implications - though I don't think I'm qualified to list them yet.

Has anyone else looked at this ?

There is an explanation here.

Yes, it is for legal reasons. It actually redirects to a domain of the country you're viewing it from.

Hard luck for the British. London is known as "the libel capital of the world"!

Thanks - as you say censorship seems to be the key driver here.

Maybe its time to think about hosting elsewhere.

From reading the comments over at Mark Wadsworth's blog I see the URL *.blogspot.com/ncr still links to your old URL without redirecting. How long that will work, or what use it is remains to be seen, I suspect its not very helpful.
