AU – Google and Yahoo raise doubts over planned net filters: “(BBC)
Google and Yahoo have joined two Australian organisations calling for a ‘rethink’ of the country’s controversial internet filter plans. The Australian government has announced proposals to introduce a mandatory filter which would block all RC (Refused Classification) content. The groups argue that the subjects covered by RC material are too wide-ranging for a blanket ban. They also warn that the filter will not ‘effectively protect children’.
