Just increase the use of VPN services, Basically this should be done everywhere regardless. When will governments learn that there is always a work around  censorship.

When they appreciate why law abiding citizens hate censorship? So, never. All sides of politics love the idea of censorship. Controlling the flow of information controls how informed a population is. Governments of all stripes want a poorly informed population.

 

 

 I feel that the Liberal slogan this time should have just been - "Fix it for cheap now, and let the other guys pay for it later"

 

 

Then, in the future, complain about how much the infrastructure sucks and how badly it is lagging behind the rest of the world.

VPN's aren't a long term strategy though. Once the MAFIAA have paid off every country's politicians, which will happen eventually, they'll be no more countries to reroute traffic through. Even now the copyright lobby isn't stopping at three strikes and website censorship. France has just started introducing automatic fines. It's only going to get worse as long as a country's laws are dictated by the rich, powerful, and corporate; which basically means as long as we have career politicians representing the will of the people instead of the people representing the people.

Three strikes doesn't deter copyright infringement
Summary: Ahead of what could be a crackdown on copyright infringement by a new Australian Coalition government, a study suggests that graduated response schemes to deter online copyright infringement don't work.
