Will the Government try to filter NZ’s Internet?

The Herald reports:

Internet NZ’s engagement director, Andrew Cushen, said legislating to enforce porn-blocking software would be costly, ineffective, provide “a false sense of security” and was an unjustified “nanny state” intervention.
“What we risk is an over-engineered government imposition that actually involves some pretty creepy stuff in terms of asking every adult to ask for permission to see a range of websites,” Cushen said.
Each household should be left to choose its own filtering software from a wide range of suppliers , he said.

Yep. Parents can decide for themselves what type of filter, if any, they want to use.
