The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) has lifted a ban on a "pornographic" Wikipedia image.
Most UK internet service providers blocked access to the image and text of the Wikipedia entry on The Scorpions after the IWF blacklisted the image.
UK Wikipedia users were up in arms after 95% were blocked from accessing the article and Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales told Channel 4 News he was considering challenging the ban.
"The IWF was clearly over-reaching its remit when it blocked the text page on Wikipedia - there is nothing illegal about the description of the album. I would also question its wisdom in trying to block the image itself," he said.
The IWF said in a statement it had decided to lift the ban "in light of the length of time the image has existed and its wide availability".
