Hamlet too violent - maybe try the Lion King next time?

The British Library’s wifi network was found to have denied access to an online copy of Shakespeare’s Hamlet because the text contained “violent content”.

A user wanted to check a line of the play and the wifi blocked the Shakespearean classic. The library said that it was still tweaking the system which was installed recently by a third-party provider.

Perhaps Disney’s take on the play would be a better option? But there may be quite a few users blubbing amongst the stacks at the death of Mufasa… come on – admit it! We all did!
