+ - Australia's web censorship law to be scrutinized

Submitted by Bismillah
Bismillah (993337) writes "A government inquiry has been launched into whether or not Australian authorities are using Section 313 of the Telecommunications Act inappropriately.

Last year, the Australian securities watchdog used Section 313 powers to force ISPs to block quarter of million web sites — this in order to prevent access to just 1,200 sites the authority deemed harmful."
