Austn: ISPs to be liable for content?!
Tue, 13 Oct 1998 13:19:14 +1000
I'm astonished that there's been no discussion on link yet about the report
on p.1 of The Australian Computer Pages today, Tuesday 13 October.
It's a pretty confused report, admittedly, but it claims that the forces of
darkness (Harradine + A/G's) are beating the more steady hand of Alston/
DOCA/ABA, and are poised to legislate to make ISPs liable for content that
passes through their facilities.
