A legal monitor informs us on Tuesday, July 27, 1999:

"Just learned from talking to Aussie pal that Net Censorship Board (in Victoria) has ordered all access to Australian Federal Court system's website blocked, because judges' opinions in controversial cases may give platform for odious views of defendants before the court (example: citing passages in books up for banning.)

"Web censor's opinion itself makes own website subject to blocking."
