Toothless tiger, sleeping dragon : implied freedoms, internet filters and the growing culture of internet censorship in Australia
Duffy, James (2009) Toothless tiger, sleeping dragon : implied freedoms, internet filters and the growing culture of internet censorship in Australia. eLaw Journal, 16(2), pp. 91-105.
The internet by its very nature challenges an individual’s notions of propriety, moral acuity and social correctness. A tension will always exist between the censorship of obscene and sensitive information and the freedom to publish and/or access such information. Freedom of expression and communication on the internet is not a static concept: ‘Its continual regeneration is the product of particular combinations of political, legal, cultural and philosophical conditions’.
