New laws re social media

Postby HBS Guy » 04 Apr 2019, 10:25

Broad-brush laws rammed through Australian Senate.
Australia is a step away from rushing in new laws that criminalise internet, hosting and content providers that don’t identify and remove “abhorrent” video, audio and still images fast enough for law enforcement’s liking.

So don’t post that shit here. I doubt the laws apply to owners of forums like this but I will be delete first ask questions later.

It seems this vote buying move by the LNP is being lambasted for it's unworkability. NO WAY can these so-called Laws ever work. Just a cynical example of electioneering. NOTHING ELSE.
