ISP filtering trials to start in batches

29 01 2009

The Australian Newspaper is reporting that participants in the Government’s controversial ISP filtering trials will commencing in batches, instead of a universal commencement as originally thought.

Of the 16 ISPs that are taking part in the trial, the Australian is reporting that the batches of ISPs will have different start and finish dates for their 6 week trials, which are to either be (a) the black list managed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA); or (b) the clean feed option.

Tests of the ISP filtering are to be conducted by Melbourne based Enex TestLab.

Even before the trials have commenced numerous public campaigns against the filtering have emerged, with most experts questioning the effectiveness of ISP filtering, in light of the fact that most material of concern is transmitted through Peer to Peer networks.
