Internet service provider iiNet, the Internet Society of Australia (ISOC-AU) and industry bodies the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association (AMTA) and the Communications Alliance have all called for restrictions on the government agencies that can issue requests for ISPs to block websites.
Teams at the Australian Securities and Investments Commission that employed section 313(3) of the Telecommunications Act 1997 to force Internet service providers to block access to websites "were not aware that a single IP address can host multiple websites," the financial watchdog has revealed.
The federal government has launched an inquiry into the use of Section 313 of the Telecommunications Act 1997 by government agencies to block access to websites.
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has revealed it has used section 313 of the Telecommunications Act 10 times to block websites, also accidentally blocking 250,000 sites.
The Attorney-General's department has refused to reveal a third agency using section 313 of the Telecommunications Act to block websites.
