  5. ### Tom Tilley:
  6. How does The Coalition justify their default internet filter, which was announced today, when the public has already rejected that policy?
  7.  
  8. ### Malcolm Turnbull:
  9. It’s not an internet filter in the sense of what Stephen Conroy was proposing.
  10.  
  11. ### Anthony Albanese:
  12. It’s worse.
  13.  
  14. ### Malcolm Turnbull:
  15. Please, just let me finish.
  16.  
  17. ### What is being proposed is that there will be — there’s no server side filter — this is a system where… it’s what the British are going to employ…
  18.  
  19. ### Tom Tilley:
  20. Sorry, no server side filter? It says in the policy document: “Involve major internet service providers, providing home network filters”
  21.  
  22. ### Malcolm Turnbull:
  23. Ok, if you just let me finish… the filter will be contained in software installed in either people’s smartphones or modems — if they’ve got fixed line broadband — which can be disabled at their option. So it is not a filter that operates at the server side at the ISP. So it doesn’t slow down the internet. It is the same as having… it’s basically the same as installing a filter on your own computer, but by making it available as a default… then that means — because a lot of people struggle, you know, technically to be able to do that — so what it does is essentially installing that software, either in the smartphone or the modem as a default which you can switch off. But then that’s your call, because it’s our view that the responsibility should lie with the parent. But this is not a server side filter at all.
  24.  
  25.  
  26. ### Some commentary:
  27. So the plan is to get every single OS maker and internet-connected device maker to install pervasive, opt-out software that has access to all network traffic. Yeah, good luck with that technically, ethically or logistically.
  28.  
  29. What a farce.
