Australien ISPs, pollies & activists speak out on internet filter

Electronic Frontiers Australia has expressed concern over the Federal Government's decision to introduce mandatory ISP-level filtering, as several ISPs indicated support contingent on further "consultation".
Communications Minister Stephen Conroy today revealed the Government's intention to introduce legislation to block "refused classification" content hosted on overseas servers.
EFA spokesman Colin Jacobs told iTnews the Federal Government's stance on just blocking child pornography was misleading.
"Refused classification is definitely more than just illegal child pornography," Jacobs said.
