'Literature and artworks snipped and banned by Singapore's censors may soon be archived online in their full glory by a group of local artists....

'Singapore typically censors publications, films and art work deemed to have excessive amounts of sex and violence, references to drug use and subjects which could cause religious or racial intolerance between the Chinese, Malay and Indian communities.

'Local artists renewed mutterings of discontent after "Talaq," a play about violence in an Indian Muslim marriage, was banned in October on the grounds it would offend religious sensitivities.'
