Australian senator calls on ISPs to block online casinos

28 October 2008

SYDNEY, Australia -- As reported by the Sydney Morning Herald: "Family First Senator Steve Fielding wants hardcore pornography and fetish material blocked under the Government's plans to filter the internet, sparking renewed fears the censorship could be expanded well beyond 'illegal material'.

"The Opposition said it would take 'a lot of convincing' for it to support the controversial mandatory ISP filtering policy, so the Government would need the support of Senator Fielding as well as the Greens and Senator Nick Xenophon to pass the legislation.

"...A spokesman for Senator Xenophon said, should the filtering plan go ahead, he would look to use it to block Australians from accessing overseas online casino sites, which are illegal to run in Australia."
