Internet filter plan abandoned

The labor governments plan to implement an internet filter in Australia continues to spark nationwide debate, even now that theย  decision has been made to abandon the plan.

Whilst sites related to child abuse will still be banned, the government has decided against the complex strategy aimed at blocking harmful material of various forms.

For some this is a win for democracy, and for others it’s the beginning of an entirely new debate.

Bill Walter spoke with Jon Lawrence from Electronic Frontiers Australia to discuss the abandoned plan and the importance of education.
