Australia Delays Internet Filtering

Stephen Conroy, an Australian Minister for Communications, announced that the country’s government needs extra time to review the RC (Refused Classification) guidelines determining the items to be blocked. The process of reviewing is expected to take at least a year.


It was just a week ago that Australia’s new PM reaffirmed the commitment of the government to implement mandatory ISP filtering of all irrelevant online material and offensive content. But since then another statement was made by the country’s Minister for Communications. He said that the government still needs some time to conduct several transparency and accountability measures that would accompany the implementing of ISP filtering of RC material.

The review will define what kind of material will fall under the Classification. The latter now includes child abuse content, along with bestiality and extreme violence. The reason for delay was that there were no public review of websites from the blacklist, and no way to make sure links were correctly labeled RC. So Conroy took the decision to work out an independent review and appeals process.

In order to provide public with confidence in RC he is planning to implement some measures, including an annual review of the RC list made by an independent expert. The latter will be appointed on industry’s advice. The Minister also plans to clear avenues for appeal process of classification rulings. Another key part will be an agreement to use a standard block page notification, allowing service providers to notify visitors about the class of content they have requested. The notification will also contain an instruction on how to seek a review of the decision in case it is incorrect. This is done because some parts of the community have voiced concern about the possibility of items mentioned in RC category list to correctly reflect the nowadays community standards.

It’s not still clear if the announced review will address a broad ban on websites hosting or selling video games failing to meet the MA15+ standard, because there’s no R18+ or X18+ classification in the country.

Meanwhile, Colin Jacobs, a head of Electronic Frontiers Australia says that though they welcome a RC review, it won’t solve the problem. If the government is planning to apply a classification scheme that was designed for books and films to the online content, that’s not going to work for sure. The only filter that can tackle the abusing content is the one between people’s ears, so it might be more reasonable for the govt to focus on that one instead.

KazzGirl avatarThe ONLY reason this was put on the back burner was the fact that the Australian Prime Minister announced there will be a Federal Election on August 21st. This is a HUGE election issue here and the encumbant government has made so many mistakes with the Royalty Mining Tax and other things that if they take this to the polls they will surely lose. ITs all an election ploy! If they get voted in they will shove it to us!
