Submission + - Australia to ban P2P

Karl_R writes: The guys at whirlpool.net.au have posted a story about a U-tern by the Australian Federal government.

It is a back-flip on a promise made just weeks ago that the government would move ahead with its filtering plans using PC-based parental controls, which, at the time, it argued would provide flexibility for internet users.
