No Hope for Australian Net Filter

There hasn’t been lots of news from Australia lately concerning the obligatory Internet filtering. Meanwhile, it seems like the country has had an election with such historical results that could lead to the death of the web filtering plan.

The curiosity is all about the “hung” parliament, which Australia hadn’t seen since 1940. This term means that no political party in the country has won a majority government. While the results of the election say that the Labor Party has won 72 seats, the Coalition (the other major political party of the country) has also won the same number of seats. This situation left 4 other representatives thinking over which side to support, as it would hold the balance of power. Of course, this ended alike – 2 of them took the side of the Labor Party and the other two supported the Coalition. This brought the political situation to a dead heat.

Electronic Frontier Australia assumes that the Coalition is against the web filtering plan. This makes one suggest that since both political sides are on equal footing, it should require support from them both to pass this plan.

In fact, this filter plan wouldn’t be passed even in the House of Representatives if it doesn’t get the support of The Greens, let alone a hostile Senate, where it would be voted down by the Coalition and Greens. This means that even if the Australian independents decided to support the plan, filter law would hardly go anywhere.

This makes the citizens hope that the country’s web filter, which was supposed to filter out “irrelevant material,” including file-sharing content, can be considered officially dead.

The situations like this in various countries point out that a minority government might be a very effective way to block law like mandatory net filter. For example, Canada knows much about avoiding a Canadian DMCA, as it was an election that killed the 1st full iteration of the law known as Bill C-60. Later, the version of the other party (Conservatives), Bill C-61, followed the same path and was dyed on the order paper due to another election. So successive minority governments, like the present one in Canada, have historically been successful in killing the bad copyright laws. The chances are that the same thing will occur in Australia for now.

This news will be undoubtedly welcomed by human rights groups in Australia, as they fought hard for almost two years.

poyda avatarLooks like it's gone for good, and about bloody time...

Today the Coalition announced it would ditch the filter and instead spend $60 million on providing internet-filtering technology free to families.
