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.
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.
Digital rights lobby group Electronic Frontiers Australia has panned the efficacy of the Internet Industry Association's planned industry-wide child pornography filter, describing it as "security theatre" that wouldn't actually make much difference to the ability of police to enforce the law.
The United States, the land of the free and the brave, and defender of the Internet, has “raised concerns” over Australia’s proposed Internet filter with Australian officials, according to a news report.
