Take a Look at What Product Censorship is Like in the Middle East

Fire up the Photoshop!

Censorship is a touchy subject and a lot of western countries and cultures just won’t understand what all the fuss is about.

Different cultures have different ideas on what is considered as appropriate.Take for example Middle Eastern countries do not like to see people showing too much skin, especially females. How do these countries get around this? Photoshop of course. Crudely done Photoshop!

So, just take a look at some of these famous album covers and advertisements and see how things get altered. You may think that they’ve gone over the top with the photoshopping, but It’s a case of complying with censorship or risk being banned from certain countries. It’s no laughing joke, not even huge corporate logos are safe. Just ask Starbucks!
