With the latest in a long line of attempts by the Australian gov't to censor the internet in a manner similar to China, it seems that its plans have finally caught the attention of the US government. The State Department has apparently raised concerns about the plan with the Australian government. The specifics of the comments to the Australian gov't were not made clear beyond "we have raised our concerns on this matter." Of course, those comments might carry a bit more weight if US politicians didn't keep suggesting similar (if not quite as stringent) plans in the US as well...
