The principal investigator of the OpenNet Initiative (ONI) has labelled the federal government's proposed mandatory Internet filtering scheme "frightening" and typical of non-democratic regimes.
Associate Professor, Ronald Deibert, is co-founder and principal investigator of ONI - a collaborative partnership between Harvard Law School, Oxford University, Cambridge University and the Citizen Lab at University of Toronto.
Deibert told ARN he found the proposal to implement mandatory filtering in Australia both puzzling and frightening.
