ACMA BLACKLIST PDF

Why does the ACMA blacklist contain ordinary pornography, horror movie clips, anti-abortion sites, pro-euthanasia sites, and poker sites? This article was originally published on 16 April on newmatilda. So, when three copies of the list were posted on Wikileaks , people were surprised to find it included ordinary pornography, horror movie clips, anti-abortion sites, pro-euthanasia sites, and poker sites. These are not errors. This is in much the same way that cinemas require proof of age for screenings of certain films.

Why does the ACMA blacklist contain ordinary pornography, horror movie clips, anti-abortion sites, pro-euthanasia sites, and poker sites? This article was originally published on 16 April on newmatilda. So, when three copies of the list were posted on Wikileaks , people were surprised to find it included ordinary pornography, horror movie clips, anti-abortion sites, pro-euthanasia sites, and poker sites. These are not errors. This is in much the same way that cinemas require proof of age for screenings of certain films.

It includes depictions of sexual fetishes, like body piercing, application of substances such as candle wax, golden showers, bondage, spanking, and fisting. It also covers extreme violence, sexual violence, child pornography, incest fantasies, and bestiality, as well as detailed instruction in crime and detailed instruction in the use of certain drugs.

Possession of child pornography is, of course, illegal all over Australia. So, if prohibited content, as a class, is not prohibited, what is it? In addition to take-down notices, ACMA can also issue a service-cessation or link-deletion notice. These notices apply to live prohibited content such as live video and links to prohibited content respectively. They operate the same way, requiring the provider to cease providing the live content or the link. So, the regulation as it stands effectively creates an opt-in filtering regime for prohibited content hosted overseas, while at the same time making hosting prohibited content in Australia impractical, since providers have to remove such content when a notice is inevitably issued.

Particular content may be illegal under state or territory law though. For example, possession and copying of RC content is illegal in Western Australia. Understanding that the ACMA blacklist is of prohibited content and that prohibited content is not just illegal content, it is clear why the sites mentioned earlier are on the list. Ordinary pornography sites are on the list because they feature real depictions of sexual activity.

The anti-abortion sites on the list contain graphic images and video of abortions and aborted foetuses. The content is not subject to any restricted access system. The pro-euthanasia sites on the list provide detailed instruction in the use of drugs like Nembutal. Under current guidelines, such instruction is classified RC. These sites were added to the list because, at the time, they had been defaced with prohibited content.

The legislation makes no distinction between sites intentionally hosting prohibited content and those that have been defaced with such content. But what about the poker sites? Under that Act, ACMA has essentially the same powers in relation to overseas-hosted prohibited Internet gambling content as it does in relation to overseas-hosted prohibited content.

This is why websites like PartyPoker. In the latter, he insisted that this has always been the case. Even if that is the case, the nature of Internet filtering is such that any blacklist will have to be secret, mistakes will be made, and circumvention will be easy. And RC is a broad category that includes material that many Australians find unobjectionable.

Perhaps it would be better if each Australian could decide for him- or herself what is objectionable.
