Conroy is convincing no-one.
See <http://hungrybeast.abc.net.au/stories/stephen-conroy-extended-interview> for an ABC interview with Stephen Conroy about this matter. His primary interest is to remove all "Refused Classification (RC)" material from the web. His stance being that since you can't actually buy it legally in Australia, neither should you able to download it from the 'net. Even if you are legally allowed to watch it in the privacy of your own home.
He goes to great pains to explain that the RC rating is NOT applied by the government, but an entirely separate entity (in other words - don't blame us).
This is the same entity that refused a (C) Children's classification for two episodes of "Skippy the bush kangaroo", and while in discussion of "Fat Cat and Friends" over their continued (C) classification, the producers decided to can the show rather than deal with these idiots.
On the matter of "The Blacklist", he casually states it has been around for nine years, so it's no secret (yet they forgot to actually tell anyone about it), and the leaked blacklist that contained innocent entries such as the dentist in Queensland was similar to, but not the same as the offically used blacklist. In other words, it's the fault of those who leaked it, not us.
He (or his cronies) were in talks with google to block RC content from YouTube, (which Google refused to do), and attempts to justify it, stating that it's already done with China and Thailand, so why can't it be done with Australia?
So there you have it. "Australia" is now pronounced "China" and Tianamen Square is a lovely tourist destination, containing a plaque saying "Nothing happened here in 1989".
