Australia to filter online casino

Trouble is brewing in Australia’s online community as Senator Steve Fielding has insisted a obligatory rule necessitating service providers to sort accessible websites.
Specialists assume that the government is beleaguered from an outspoken minority – the act can cause the filters disabling not only illegitimate websites such as child pornography but legal websites including online casinos.
Communications Minister Stephen Conroy had assured that anybody disagree with the restriction of the Internet could avoid the filtering plan, but presently Conroy has put forward a ‘2-tiered’ system whereby adults could “opt out” of the filters concerning websites considered inappropriate for kids, but could not in the case of websites inappropriate for adults.
