UK-- Users of Wikipedia are now again able to view the cover of the 1976 album, 'Virgin Killer', by The Scorpions.
Access to the Wikipedia entry was blocked after fears that the cover, featuring a nude girl would be illegal. About 95% British users were unable to access the page once Internet Providers agreed to enforce a ban of the page.
The Internet Watch Foundation lifted the restrictions after taking into account “the length of time the image has existed and its wide availability”.
In a statement the IWF stated "IWF's overriding objective is to minimize the availability of indecent images of children on the internet, however, on this occasion our efforts have had the opposite effect." They acknowledged the growth in people trying to seek out the cover after they started the ban.
