Did they have a warrant when they blocked this site (and all other blogspot blogs) in 2010? Did they get a warrant when there was another flurry of sites that couldn't be accessed from Kazakhstan in 2011?

I don't know how the "warrant" requirement works in Kazakhstan, but usually a warrant would be something issued by a judge against a specific entity or web site. Not the kind of blanket ban I ran into when I was in Kaz. So I wonder if this law is doing much more than legalizing something that was already being done.
