Vietnam's Ministry of Information and Communication has reached out to various companies and told them to stop advertising on YouTube videos that contain "anti-state propaganda," according to news reports.

Apparently, Vietnam's government identified more than 50,000 YouTube videos that it said violated Vietnamese law.  

Although technology may allow for media space to be bought easily around the world, this action emphasizes the importance of knowing when to work with local advertising agencies and counsel to ensure that the advertising content running in that country complies with local standards.
