IAA support of ADA submission on website blocking bill

Earlier this month the Senate Environment and Communications Committee Inquiry into the Copyright Amendment (Online Infringement) Bill 2018 accepted submissions on the proposed  amendments to Australia’s website blocking scheme.

The Australian Digital Alliance (ADA)  invited the Association to lend its support to their submission, which expressed concerns regarding the widening of the Bill, which proposed substantial changes to complex law without the appropriate level of consultation, or support from relevant stakeholders.

You can read with full submission of the Australian Digital Alliance here. The IAA submission of support is available here. The committee report was released yesterday and is available here.
