Careful what you Google in Australia!

After the most restricted Internet censorship by china in the world, there has been a lot of talk about the proposed banning on the Internet in Australia. Australia plans law and regulation at both Commonwealth and State/Territory Government level, that will ban all Refused Classification content. Within that, objectionable content will be blocked.

Based on the report of the Sydney Morning Herald, Google, Yahoo and many others have criticized the Australian government for making such huge demands. Moreover, Google has stated that it is a large-scale filtering and it would affect internet speed and could mislead parents to a false fear of safety.

Still Google is in a battlefield with China and Australia. Although Google did not give into China’s filtering regulation and it shut down its Internet Search Service there in March 2010. Do you think Google will give into Australia or not? We’ll see!
