It's a bit like MPAA vs iiNet - go after the smaller one in the hope that it carries on to the bigger ones. One hope - the current Government is a bit on the nose at the moment. Let's hope that this doesn't sneak under the radar.
Well, it's the Interpol list, not the government's, so not their fault if other things are blocked.
Anyway, can't Interpol block them? Why is it up to individual countries to try and force laws like we could have had?
Obviously the 1997 Act is good enough, but why do ISP's need reminding?
I agree with most of your points, AC. The ratio of 'useful' to 'crap' is getting out of hand and only going to get worse. I can make up my own mind given accurate data but GIGO and the garbage is growing.
You forgot your sarcmark.
1. They tested with 3 small ISP's, less than 1000 people all up, and it wasn't 'microseconds'.
2. Tell that to the dentist in Qld.
3. We all trust an 'independant body' now, don't we.
It isn't just 'illegal content', it's anything they decide.
