> 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.
