The Australian Censorship system currently requires all games released in australia to be submitted to the OFLC for classification and yet there are thousands of unclassified games available via Apple’s iTunes store, the Android store, the internet and Steam.

There are different censorship regimes for Books, Film, TV, Games and the Internet – but isn’t the Internet ultimately going to deliver all of this content?

Is the Australian Censorship system broken beyond repair, or are there avenues we can take to patch the system?
