Nearing Deadline, Australia Has Yet to Outline Net Restrictions  


Just weeks away from a Jan. 1 deadline for enacting legislation 
intended to restrict children's access to online pornography, the 
Australian government has yet to decide how to enforce the law.  

While most Australian Internet users expect the government to adopt a 
set of rules proposed by Internet companies, critics say that this 
approach, which they consider less draconian than the original 
legislation, is still flawed. And the Internet service providers that 
must enforce the legislation are still wondering what, if anything, 
they need to do by the new year.
