Fines Proposed for Australian Internet
Service Providers 

[SYDNEY--September 9] An Australian senator,
Tasmanian Independent Brian Harradine,
proposed that Internet Service Providers
should be fined for knowingly transmitting
pornographic and violent images over the

Senator Harradine called on both the Liberal
and Labor parties to support the legislation,
which would make it a criminal offence for
ISPs to carry such images. 

This proposed legislation would be enforced
by computer users' complaints to ISPs to
remove offensive material. Once this material
is reported to an ISP, it would then be
illegal for those ISPs to carry this
material, and they would be fined if they
continued to relay the material.
