You can’t show that on an iPad - The Boston Globe

Sign of the times…

James Joyce’s “Ulysses” is one of the most famously banned books of the 20th century. But while the US legal system has basically given up on the regulation of sexually explicit literature, Apple is keeping up the pressure. The UK edition of Macworld reports that the creators of “Ulysses Seen,” a Web-comic adaptation of Joyce’s masterwork, had to remove nudity from its pages in order to win Apple’s approval to sell the work to iPad owners.

On a related note, a clip from The Facebook Effect: Facebook’s policy is to take down “…  content that advocates hate, violence, or breaking the law.”  See Facebook’s Developer Principles & Policies for more details.
