Australian Censorship Law Still Confuses
from the ah,-to-have-absolute-power dept
Here’s a Wired News article that discusses the group that gets to censor the internet in Australia. It seems that there’s basically no oversight of the group – and they refuse to tell anyone which sites they have shut down or why. They claim they are doing this because they don’t want to be seen as “promoting” child pornography sites. Of course, if the sites have been taken down, what’s the difference? And, in cases where they’re not child pornography, couldn’t they at least reveal what the sites were?
