The Administrative Appeals Tribunal in Sydney is hearing an appeal against a take-down notice for a link Electronic Frontiers Australia provided to illustrate its case against Internet filtering.
So IDES, the Illinois Department of Employment Security, sent me a notice back in February about potential overpayment, but it was sent to my old address. I didn't get any notice about it, and didn't know anything until they took my state tax refund at which point I called in and spoke to someone.
In an appeal for the younger "internet generation" to get involved, Electronic Frontiers Australia has launched a campaign to help them educate parents about the total pointlessness of the Internet filter.
The continued support by several of Australia's largest internet service providers for a voluntary version of the Federal Government's mandatory ISP filtering scheme has attracted the ire of the world's largest digital rights group, the Electronic Frontiers Foundation.
Today's announcement that any implementation of the proposed Internet Filter will be delayed until after the completion of a 12-month review of the "Refused Classification" category has support from Electronic Frontiers Australia, except for the part where it will be revisited after the review.
