Download: [Australia] AIC Submits Comments on Online Safety Legislative Reform – Discussion Paper (21 February 2020)

The Asia Internet Coalition (AIC) submitted comments to the Department of Communications and the Arts (“Department”) and the Government of Australia on the Online Safety Legislative Reform – Discussion Paper (“Discussion Paper”). We commend the Department for their efforts on drafting a new Online Safety Act (“Act”) to improve Australia’s online safety regulatory framework. While we support these efforts to replace the existing framework with a single Online Safety Act, we express our concerns on some of the requirements proposed in the Online Safety Legislative Reform – Discussion Paper.
