Plans to filter criminal content on web
MonthI have just read on the BBC website that Australia intends to introduce filters which will ban access to websites containing criminal content. The banned sites will be selected by an independent classification body guided by complaints from the public.

I'm sure the UK will not be far behind in producing similar filters for our own networks. Read the full web filter article.
