Wikileaks is no longer on the Australian blacklist of banned websites, according to the Australian Communications and Media Authority.
"Currently, the ACMA list of prohibited URLs that is notified to accredited filter providers does not contain any URLs within the Wikileaks website," the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) told ZDNet UK's sister site ZDNet Australia in a statement. "Since April 2010, the ACMA has investigated two complaints about specific pages of content on the Wikileaks website, which both resolved to content found to be not prohibited."
Sites on the blacklist are what the ACMA marks as refused classification material. This material would be blocked under the Australian government's proposed mandatory internet filtering scheme. However, the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General will review what is defined in the category of refused classification material before the government moves ahead with any legislation surrounding the filtering scheme.
