Australian Government Tenatively Warms to ISP Filters

Communications Minister Helen Coonan has said the government has not ruled out a filtering system as proposed by members of the Australian legislature.  Prior to this, she had said that the system to filter pornography and violence at the ISP level would be too costly and difficult to implement.  Now, apparently, trials are being conducted in Tasmania on such a system with results going to the government shortly. 

The Sydney Morning Herald has more details.
