Australian Regulator Backed Calls to End Geoblocking

Australian Regulator Backed Calls to End Geoblocking

Internet Australia supported calls to end geoblocking after the use of legal video-on-demand services rocketed. Trying to rebalance the local intellectual property system, the Productivity Commission issued recommendation that the federal government oppose the restriction of online content by territory. It turned out that most illegal piracy was driven by absence of legal alternatives.


According to Internet Australia, if geoblocking could be bypassed through VPNs and other workarounds, Australian outlets would be put under greater pressure to secure rights to popular content. Apparently, some people will go to great lengths to watch the content they want if it’s not readily available in their home country. At the same time, most people are happy to pay a reasonable price and enjoy favorite movies legitimately. Now Internet Australia renewed its call for a repeal of the so-called “site-blocking law”, passed by parliament last summer. The piece of legislation in question gave copyright owners the ability to apply to the federal court to have foreign websites blocked by Australian ISPs. However, these measures appeared ineffective in targeting unlawful downloading, because content quickly reappeared on different websites or under new names.

Internet Australia reiterates that piracy would be best combated by making content legitimately available at a reasonable price. Indeed, Netflix’s launch in Australia in March 2015 was linked to a drop in piracy. However, Netflix’s catalog in Australia is still smaller than that in the US. Nevertheless, Netflix and two local services, Presto and Stan, were described as a reason for “explosion” in video on demand in Australia.

Grumpa avatarWell, Well, Well, without water, just three holes in the ground. After putting up with this kind/type of garbage since internet sharing started I note with disinterest that nothing has changed and these so called 'officials' still have what normally hangs between most males legs - protruding from their forheads. They have learned nothing.

fuxup avatarIf its ok for Google & Facebook to use our likeness after we've posted Pix of ourselves on the Net, then why does our Aussie Gov (or anyone's Gov for that matter)get so pissy about us D/L'n "illegal content"....Why I here you ask, well its simple, it all boils down to the TAX dollars that they cant extract from us!! If its out there to be found on the web then if I don't D/L it someone else bloody well will, & hey I love Game of Thrones and Id be old & frail before free to air telecast it, and I'd have to sit up all night to see it 'coz of its "Ratings" which is funny as we've only had all night free to air for around 10-12yrs where I live. Maybe it is time for another Eureka Stockade Revolution, I personally think that without us inventive Aussies the world not have home Computers nor would there be WiFi or the Hills Hoist or lawn mowers as we know them....Thank You, now I'll go and bury my head back in the sand
