Opt-in or opt-out?

In the final election hours Opposition communications spokesman Malcolm Turnbull announced in an interview with ABC radio the Coalitions $10 million “Policy to Enhance Online Safety for Children.” The details of the policy sounded alot like Senator Conroy’s internet filter, which was heavily criticised and eventually abandoned last year. In the JJJ interview, Malcolm Turnbull said “What [our policy] does is essentially install that software either in  the smartphone or in the modem as a default which you can switch off but then that’s at your call.”
