Australia's Tangled Censorship Web

Confused by all the controversy surrounding the Australian Government plans to filter the internet? New Matilda has been holding forums about the proposed censorship regime. Here's some video to help explain.

Melbourne's session featured:

Colin Jacobs, Electronic Frontiers Australia
Michael Flood, Sociologist
Senator Scott Ludlam, Australian Greens

From Michael Flood:

I'm now far less than convinced that I used to be of the value of ISP based filtering as a strategy. I'm much more convinced of its technical problems and I'm more convinced of its political dangers. ... You can say that one of the early advocates of ISP filtering is now backing away from this.
No permanent friends or enemies, just permanent interests.
