I've run across reports of India selectively filtering a few wikipedia
pages so no.

India is also has a slightly less free fair dealing system than the UK
in that it doesn't include the private study clause although I doubt
that would have any impact on us.

Australian copyright law may be kinda unstable right now there are a
couple of possible changes that would really bite.

I don't really know anything about South African law other than I
assume it is based of old British law.
