Report: Clairview Internet Sheriff
An Independent Review

25 June 1999

<< Return to Report - Page 1

Appendix 2: Examples of Material Found Blocked/Not Blocked

The list below provides examples of the types of material found blocked/not blocked during evaluation of the Internet Sheriff blocking technology installed on Clairview/Tel.net Media's CVue ISP in Brisbane in May 1999. The list also includes the results of brief ad hoc checks conducted after the issue of EFA's report and the manual unblocking of domains (e.g. Ozemail etc) by Clairview. At that time, it was found that some pornographic material which had been blocked during prior tests had become accessible and was no longer identified as pornographic by the Internet Sheriff Technology. However, some sites not previously checked were blocked on-the-fly by the Internet Sheriff Technology.

The list excludes material of an obviously "pornographic" nature that was found to be either accessible or inaccessible. To list such sites is to invite blocking of material that is legally available to Australian adults offline, and companies promoting a real time automated blocking system should be capable of blocking same without the assistance of independent researchers. However, some of the material listed below may be considered pornographic by some readers (eg. nudity on art gallery sites) and/or sites may contain links to such material.

Inclusion in the list below is not a comment on whether or not the material is suitable for children. The list simply shows that service goes beyond the advertised claim of blocking pornographic material that "could not be viewed in an Australian public place". The vast majority of blocked material listed below would be viewable in Australian (non-adult) shops, libraries, art galleries, etc and much of it on Australian free-to-air television and in films and videos.
