Actually, it currently works in a similar way here. The Information and Communications Technologies Authority(BTK) orders ISPs to block lots of websites without declaring any reason. The fact that the "Law regarding crimes committed on the Internet" (indirectly) requires the websites to prove their innocence, while they can be taken down without notice.

They screwed up big two weeks ago when they tried to take down a list of websites including the most popular domestic social portal, which has enough cashflow to defend itself and enough influence to organize such an event.

The website itself is strictly text only(besides a couple of logos) and strictly moderated against illegal content. The reason was child porn, and then BTK declared that the portal was added to the list by mistake, but for some reason the whole order got cancelled after the reactions.
