The paper “ Internet Filter Stakeholders” is an entertaining example of a business assignment. Internet filtering is an issue being critically debated in Australia. This is because its implementation may have adverse effects on the stakeholders and the general public. The report seeks to identify the effects and the expectations of the issue on the stakeholders. Six main stakeholders composed of primary and secondary have been identified for the report. The report has discussed the effects that the implementation of internet filtering may have on each stakeholder. Their expectations both positive and negative have also been discussed in the report.
The report has, however, noted that some stakeholders may have minimal influence over the matter since they are not allowed to participate in the law-making process. On the other hand, the politicians have been identified to have the greatest influence since they participate directly in the law-making process. The report has thus come up with a conclusion that the debate over internet filtering may not come to an end any time soon due to the divergence in views among the members of the public and the stakeholders. IntroductionInternet filtering is the process of ensuring that some contents are removed from the internet to prevent access.
Over the recent past, internet filtering has become a sensitive issue that has generated a lot of debate among various stakeholders. The debate is mainly about its impacts, merits, and demerits in the sector (Bauer, 2009). The debate, however, lacks solid conclusions among the members of the public and stakeholders. This may result in the issue not being resolved and failure to pass a good piece of legislation to guide the matter.
The report will identify six stakeholders in Australia who will be affected by the implementation of an internet filter. The report will also make the distinction between the primary and secondary stakeholders with the expectations, rights, interests, and desires of each stakeholder being analyzed in detail. The stakeholders who will be affectedThe following presents a list of stakeholders who will be affected by the implementation process.
