TMZ blocks visitors in UK

Earlier this evening, TMZ.com started showing this message to visitors from the United Kingdom:



Who else is seeing this? State your country and see if we can figure out if this is a temporary glitch or a perplexing new policy.

No idea what laws they are vaguely reffering to. No-one outside UK seems to be getting this message.

Update: Well it's true folks. TMZ got back to me and confirm the site is no longer available in the UK due to legal restrictions. No elaboration.

I understand this won't matter much to anyone outside the UK but we can all agree websites blocking countries isn't what the Internet promised us :(
