Even as Australia pushes ahead with it’s plan to screen internet content, tools that allow Australians to circumvent the filtering are already hitting the market. The key to this movement is that the Australian government currently has no plans to outlaw schemes that bypass their filtering.
Apcmag.com tells of a service provider that will do it for $8 per month. So, you could say that Australia’s internet filtering scheme is creating jobs. Not only will it employ people to manage and maintain the filtering, it is creating an entirely new industry comprised of technologies and training to defeat the filtering.
Seems like there might be a tie-in to the broken window theory in there somewhere.
