New Australian Net Proposals Bring Smiles To Downloaders

Possible good news on the horizon  :-D

Australians will be blocked from accessing popular overseas websites hosting pirated movies and TV shows but would escape punishment for downloading illicit content under copyright law proposals being presented to federal cabinet on Tuesday.

Attorney-General George Brandis and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull have developed a minimalist set of reforms to be debated at the final cabinet meeting of the year that avoids harsh penalties such as throttled speeds for repeat illicit downloaders.

If approved, the changes will disappoint rights holders who had been lobbying for tougher legislative action.

As always the fine detail of the proposals will spell out whether this is a good or bad piece of legislation but if copyright maximalists are disappointed it has my support  :yes:
