+ - Australian Labor party finally backs down on Internet filter->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Looks like Australia will not join the ranks of countries like China and Iran after all; the ALP has decided to abandon its controversial Internet filtering legislation, instead forging voluntary agreements with major ISPs to block certain sites identified by interpol as the "worst of the worst". The legislation would have mandated all ISPs use a blacklist of "refused classification" sites produced by the Australian Communications and Media Authority, covering a much broader range of offensive material than child abuse."
