For everyone who is concerned about this matter and wants to get their head around the issues, the actual source documents are available as follows:
- Australian Communications and Media Authority – Media Release
- Online Content Regulation – Overview from Minister’s Office
- Broadcasting Services Act 1992 – including amendment No. 124, 2007
- Communications Legislation Amendment (Content Services) Act 2007, No. 124, 2007
The legislation noted above was passed by the Liberal government in 2007.
What we actually do not know as yet is what actual regulations or legislation the current Labor government will enact. They seem to be just making confusing press statements at the moment. I know I’m confused!
