In the News "The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Infrastructure and Communications today released its report on IT pricing in Australia, making 10 recommendations and concluding that the long-discussed 'Australia tax' is real." One of the recommendations is to make geo-blocking circumvention legal - and as a last resort, the committee recommends the government to make geo-blocking illegal altogether. Pretty strong language.

Of course, this will have the "downside" of making it so that Australia can't effectively ban games and other media that is available in any other country. Here's hoping the busy bodies don't catch on to that.
