New laws re social media

Postby HBS Guy » 04 Apr 2019, 09:25

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.

I watched horrific videos of beheadings and various other sick gore topics. I was a bit horrified when I first saw the beheading of an American hostage. But, I think I am mature enough to expect this as a reality of some societies.

Why not just allow these videos to be shown on certain websites, with the requirement that the websites show warnings before people access the content? The wowsers can step out and get a life, whilst we rationalise how to counter the sick individuals who cause these barbaric crimes.

Yeah, post a URL, not using YouTube tags, to something but include a clear WARNING: of what the link contains. I am then not hosting the content.

I agree.....how can it work?

The public report abhorrent content.

The authorities ask the host to remove it.

If they don't, they're punished.
