Australia’s internet filter ‘won’t protect kids’

Protecting children online could be harder with a mandatory internet filter in place, a coalition including state schools, librarians and key players in the internet industry has warned.The recently formed Safer Internet Group argues that the federal government’s proposed filter is a simplistic solution to shielding children from harmful content on the internet.”We believe that real online safety can be delivered without the implementation of a mandatory internet filter, which locks parents and the industry out of keeping kids safe online,” the group wrote in a submission to a parliamentary committee on cyber safety.
