> The Federal Government's proposed internet filtering regime appears
> to be on a collision course with the US, judging by a speech given
> by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
> While, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iran were mentioned by Clinton, the
> talk was seen as being largely directed at China, especially
> following threats by US search engine Google to pull out of the
> country in relation to recent hacking concerns.
> But taken literally, the speech, which said censorship should not be
> accepted, and governments shouldn't prevent internet users from
> connecting to certain websites by means of filtering, puts the US in
> contrast to Australia.
