We are working with law enforcement and industry partners to target extremist use of the internet and where there is illegal material we are working to remove it. Under the Terrorism Act 2000/2006 this includes material that either incites or encourages terrorism. In the coming weeks we will be talking to industry, and those in the community, about what more we can do to protect communities from extremist exploitation of the internet.
