I hear this same argument from clients who want me to unblock Napster. If you look at the definition of censorship, it becomes fairly clear that when a private company decides to block certain types of content from its private network, that is not censorship. In order to "censor" Napster, or new.net, or anything else, I would have to block (or at least attempt to block) every possible access to it, rather than simply blocking it from my company's private network.
