Google Against Australian Internet Filtering

Australian politicians seem to be obsessed with censorship, trying to back a daft report calling for the web to be regulated just like television.

According to the local media reports, search giant Google is currently trying to fight the plan of Australian politicians based on the much disgraced Internet censorship filter. Iarla Flynn, Google Australia’s head of public policy and government affairs, announced that it was unclear how any regulation could be imposed on the online material without the rejected filter.

However, even then there’s no case for regulating Internet media, and Google fails to work out how the one-size-fits-all model suggested by the convergence review would work in nowadays real life. Meanwhile, the industry observers still remember the Communications Minister Stephen Conroy – this person was apparently a little miffed when its despotic-style Internet filter was quietly shelved as being too silly for the country. Still, Stephen Conroy appears to believe that repackaging the filter as a TV-style regulation can play well.

Conroy confirmed last week that his plan to govern the web was still under work, and pointed out that the government should work out the technology after getting an Australian Law Reform Commission report on the country’s classification scheme. However, Conroy still fails to realize that the legislation has to work around which technologically is possible, not the other way around.

Senator Conroy pointed out that a number of broadband providers, including Telstra and Optus, have already been filtering the material, blocking “'illegal child abuse matter” depending on a list made by Interpol. However, the problem has never been child porno websites, but rather other services the Australian government wanted on
