    Illegal and banned are two different things.

    In the US there are no "bans" like the way China does things. The Government can't "ban" web sites, they can just make it illegal to display/publish certain material - but if someone decides to break the law there is nothing in place to automatically prevent them from posting it, or others from viewing it.

    The few things I know are outright illegal:

    Child porn, bomb making guides, corporate/trade secrets, intellectual property (without permission), ANY threats against the President or other elected officials, very specific (actionable) threats against anyone else.

    Private web hosting providers can and often do enact limits and outright bans on certain content they don't want to provide, but that's their right as a private business. The Government can't tell them what they can and can't host.

    Well, of course there's the government thing. But despite the type of government China is a very developed country. I didn't think they would censor or outright ban fish tank stuff.

    How about using proxy servers? Can't he do it that way?

    My apologies. Even though I succeeded in it, it was not my intention to hitchhike your thread, elweshomayor.

    It's not "fish tank stuff", it's whole websites that they ban. It's not like certain YouTube videos don't work, it's like YouTube is always down.

    Proxy probably won't work. The best idea is to throw stuff up onto torrents, or just on a server so he can just download it as a file.

    Thanks, my friend. I mess stuff up like this all the time :D
    I have a pretty good excuse though: I'm foreign and I don't know any better :D :D :D

    I appreciate the help though. Some would get upset when corrected, since I'm not originally from here, I take it as help..... which I'm sure its what it is. So again, Thanks for helping me with my grammar :)
    I really do appreciate it, my friend.
