Heavy Metal

Virgin Killer - Scorpions Album Cover - Recreated by The ApeIt would seem that Wikipedia has been censored in the UK because their page about the Scorpions 1976 album Virgin Killer reproduces the album artwork, which features underage nudity.

The Internet Watch Foundation asked UK ISPs to block access to the whole "Virgin Killer" Wikipedia page in response to a complaint from the British Public. They looked long and hard at the picture and deemed that it was "potentially illegal". The nice man from Wikipedia was on Radio 4 this morning complaining that
  • the album artwork was also visible on Amazon, eBay and Google Images
  • the whole page is blocked, including the text - why didn't they just block the image?

I don't want the IWF to be shut down The Ape, so I have recreated the image in the Ape house-style and hope that no-one reports me.

Update


It would appear that the IWF have backed down.
