Submission + - Australian Federal Police to block or ban websites (news.com.au)

AHuxley writes: The Australian Federal Police commissioner could have the power to make ISPs block and ban websites
alleged to be connected to crime or terrorism under an internet censorship amendment bill introduced into the Australian Parliament today.
The controversial web ban bill was tabled in the Senate at 9:58am, without prior notice.
Communications Minister Senator Helen Coonan (Liberal) proposes to expand the "black list"
of URLs currently maintained by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) to include terrorism and cyber-crime sites.
