Aussie Govt to Filter Online Video Games

Downloadable games, flash-based games, and sites that sell physical copies of games with rating greater than MA15+ (suitable for 15yos) would be blocked, even for adults.

Australia’s ridiculous plan to censor the Internet gets more ridiculous by the day.

It all started as a voluntary effort to “protect children,” but quickly spiraled into an all out attempt by the Australian govt to make it mandatory for ISPs to filter the Internet of all “inappropriate content” and “offensive and illegal material.” It quickly deteriorated from an attempt to somehow safeguard children from things like child pornography to things like legal pornography, gambling, and even P2P traffic, making Australian citizens rightly upset.

Now it’s being reported, and apparently confirmed by Broadband Minister Stephen Conroy, the main proponent of the govt’s efforts, that the filtering plan will include video games by targeting sites that host or sell ones that don’t meet the MA15+ standard (suitable for 15yos) being that Australia lacks an R18+ or X18+ classification.

Ah, Stephen, what happened? You weren't like this when I knew you!
