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.

Haha nice one. Great news this. About time the Gov gets tough on this. Australia is one of the most expensive places to live (cost of living). Those ahole OS companies gouging us leaves a bitter taste. Sadly, the LNP will probably drop this line whilst undoing the NBN when they win the federal election. Back to the drawing board.
