Seems like the Aussie government has disregarded
most of the objections to its plan to impose more draconian copyright
restrictions on Internet usage. Rightsholders will be able to get
injunctions against sites whose “primary effect” (no longer just
“primary purpose”) is to facilitate copyright infringement, and they
will also have “adaptive injunctions”, meaning they can reinterpret an
existing court order as circumstances change, instead of having to go
back to court to get a new order.
You’d think a statement like
“The Government has zero tolerance for online piracy. It is
should be an instant disqualification from making any kind of
statement about copyright law...
