Censorship occuring in Australia

A new bill has been introduced into the Senate in Australia that will see websites that promote terrorism and cyber-crime websites added to a block list.

This ISP will then be contacted and further action will be undertaken by the ISPs.

This is seriously a bad law to even be introduced in the first place. Firstly, this will do absolutely nothing to stop these websites as it will only apply if the website is hosted in Australia by an Australian ISP. Most of these terrorism websites will be hosted elsewhere where no law like this applies.

Also, it is bad that they have delegated the task to the ISP, as this will hugely burden the ISP.
