Australian group says filters don't work, in contradiction to US COPA trial

A group in Australia called the “Safer Internet Group” (link) has been lobbying for more systematic control of potentially HTM materials on the web, with a five-pronged approach, and it claims (in opposition to findings in the US COPA trial) that Internet filters really don’t protect minors, in a story by Ari Sharp in an Australian site called “the Age” here.

One of the prongs called for "comprehensive policing of illegal materials on the Internet".  But I'm not sure what's "illegal" in Australia compare to the U.S.
