What comes next?

Is it really the job of a corporate to ban material on the internet?

Qantas has defended the adequacy of its internet filters after a man accessed child pornography in its Melbourne Airport lounge.

Mark Stephen Heers, 45, of St Leonards, NSW, pleaded guilty in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday to three counts of using the internet to access child pornography, including on a public computer at the Qantas Club last September.

Child pornography is horrific, to be sure, but will a company soon be also asked to block information about “terrorism”?
