If you are not a Malaysian, you probably have not heard of the now-famous Negarakuku rap. It is a rap recorded by a Malaysian student, Namewee that pointed out his views on Malaysia. Most of the points raised were spot on such as corruption in the police force. Unfortunately, some people find part of the rap offensive.
Namewee has since apologized especially after receiving death treats thrown at him threatening him and his family. However, this issue where some believe has been blown out of proportion is not going to end just yet. Malaysia’s local newspaper, TheStar reported that Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz wants action to be taken against YouTube and other bloggers.
The Minister also said that he wanted action to be taken against YouTube and other bloggers who allowed sensitive material which went against the laws of Malaysia to be published.
Do you think that the Malaysian government has a chance at the giant Google?
