Jillian,

Yes Google has been dealing with content (ie. blocking) on a per country basis for a while.  what is new is that they will now direct users to their Country Code Top Level Domains (ccTLD)'s. In so doing they are moving the user to the jurisdiction of the ccTLD operator - and any legal framework, requirements and/or other regulations that they may have.

So the user is being brought closer to a national level authority, something which wasn't the case before.

Robert
