  3. Refused Classification means what, exactly?

    Australia’s planned mandatory internet service provider level internet filter will block Refused Classification (RC) material. Communications Minister Senator Stephen Conroy says that’s "child pornography, pro-bestiality sites, pro-rape websites and material like that". But it’s actually more than that.

  4. Parents don’t act on cyber-safety fears

    Most Australian parents are concerned about the safety of their children online. But new research shows that parents don’t back up their concerns with meaningful actions, and that in any event they might well be concerned about the wrong risks.

  6. Internet filtering with Minister for Communications Stephen Conroy

    The federal government will introduce mandatory internet filtering this year. And after recent abuse appearing on Facebook memorial sites, the government is also looking at establishing an internet ombudsman. So how far should control of the internet go for the sake of making the online world safer for children? Is it actually possible to make the internet safe?

  8. Your Net Under Threat

    Earlier this year you might have heard the massive ruckus being kicked up by Australia’s online community. They were, and still are, angry about the Federal Government’s plan to bring in a compulsory internet filter, aimed at improving cyber-safety by blocking websites with criminal content. [Here it’s worth pointing out that the proposed filter does not only block "criminal content" but everything considered "Restricted Content" which has a far wider definition.]

    The Government’s released the report into the trial and say it’s all systems go – they want the filter in place by the middle of next year. Damian Smith spoke to Curtin University Internet Studies Lecturer Dr Tama Leaver on Morning Magazine.

  9. ABC Radio National: Mandatory Internet Filter

    The Rudd Labor government made an election promise to bring in a mandatory internet filter for all Australian web users.

    The filter is part of a $125 million cyber-safety plan intended to protect children from inappropriate material on the web.

    There’s still no sign of the live trial of the technology that was due to start over a month ago, and in the meantime there’s increasing opposition to the plan.

    We hear opposing views on the merits of the internet filter.
