    The Australian Internet Industry has a list of 16 approved filters. However, testing by Computer Choice found that innocuous content, such as medical sites, were often blocked while some adult content passed through the filter.

Internet, censorship ... Is voluntary internet filtering a crime? | Crikey - 0 views

  • The voluntary filtering being introduced by some of Australia’s major internet service providers (ISPs) is on shaky legal ground
  • content filters based on Interpol’s blacklist of child exploitation material rather than the relevant portions of the blacklist that  continues to be compiled by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).
  • But is that the way we make laws? We just leave the commercial sector to do its own thing?
