au: No opt-out of filtered Internet

Australians will be unable to opt-out of the government’s pending Internet content filtering scheme, and will instead be placed on a watered-down blacklist, experts say.Under the government’s $125.8 million Plan for Cyber-Safety, users can switch between two blacklists which block content inappropriate for children, and a separate list which blocks illegal material.Pundits say consumers have been lulled into believing the opt-out proviso would remove content filtering altogether.
