Or so my Government keeps saying.
A free and open society.
So why does one of the Amnesty International programmes, Irrepressible Info.com show the following map?
Just a small quote from the the information on Australian ISP Filters.
“For offensive content hosted outside of Australia, the ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority) itself determines whether content is prohibited and notifies a list of certified Web-filter manufacturers to include the prohibited sites in their filters. To obtain certification, these certified “Family Friendly Filters” must agree to keep lists of prohibited sites confidential.”
Yep, I am feeling freer by the minute! I am free from knowing what I am unable to see on the internet.
How does your country rate?
