Submission + - Australian Government Scraps Plan To Filter The Internet (gizmodo.com.au)

lukehopewell1 writes: After three years of trying to pass a controversial plan to filter the internet from Refused Classification (material rated above X) content, the Australian Government has tonight finally walked away from its plans to subject the country's internet users to a mandated "clean-feed".

Instead the government will now compel Australian internet service providers to implement a filter that blocks out only the material listed on Interpol's blacklist.
