    Not sure where the Wix issue was discussed...



    A group of exiled activists said a website they put up to call for greater democratic freedoms in the city had been taken down on Monday by Wix, the Israeli company hosting it. Nathan Law, one of the activists, posted images on Twitter of a letter written by the Hong Kong police to Wix, demanding the company take down the site or face a fine and six months of imprisonment for an employee.

    Three hours after Mr. Law’s tweet, Wix reversed course. The company restored the site and issued an apology. A company spokeswoman said that the site had been removed by mistake and that the company was reviewing its process for screening takedown requests.

    Expect an injunction to ban the site from being accessed from HK with a provision for similar sites also to be blocked.
