Greens reject ISP filter

LABOR'S hopes of getting its internet filter plan through Federal Parliament
look destined to fail, with the Australian
Greens calling for a PC-based approach.

Greens communications spokesman Senator Scott Ludlam today released the party's
cyber safety policy, opposing Labor's
mandatory internet service provider (ISP) level filter.

The $40 million policy involves PC-based filtering, further research into cyber
safety risks, strengthened law
enforcement, and net literacy education.

"The Greens believe Australians need a world-class national broadband network
but we don't need the Australian
Government looking over our shoulder and filtering what we see," Senator Ludlam
said.

"A voluntary filter at the household level would be more effective to protect
kids."
