New HTTP Error Code Proposed to Signal Internet Censorship

Tim Bray, a leading Android developer at Google, has proposed the creation of a new HTTP status code in order to indicate that a webpage is unavailable due to legal restrictions. The suggested HTTP code: 451 is meant to give Internet service providers the ability to serve users with more transparency. The name of the error code 451 is an allusion to the novel Fahrenheit 451 by the late Ray Bradbury, in which all books are supposed to be banned and subsequently burned by state “firemen.”
