TheFrunj writes “In the wake of an attack on Australian Government websites comes a statement from a joint group of companies, each banding together to oppose Senator Conroy’s infamous Internet Filter. AtomicMPC has posted the statement up on their site: ‘We, the Australian Library and Information Association, Google, Inspire Foundation and Yahoo! agree that Australia needs to take effective action to ensure that internet users, and particularly children, have a safe experience online.’ Backed by the weight of the Inspire Foundation, Google and Yahoo, this is a good sign for the local and international community that will hopefully spark some positive reaction.”
