Wonder how that relates to television programming and other corporate media
Does the law apply only if the offerings are distributed using
phone/internet technologies?
Does the law apply only if the distributor is a person and not a
Does student viral media reflect the same kinds of conflict resolution or
violence distributed in other media?
Jail terms for kids seems to be a blunt instrument for an issue of social
cohesion and learning mutual respect and responsibility.

Would South Australian schools be able to buy the confronting film made in
Perth which aims to educate about the problems of excessive drinking and
parties without borders?

Perhaps it would be good to have an approach which addressed the conflict
and not just the evidence that it is happening?
