When will people realize, right wing politicians want to make the rich richer and everyone else scared to death of, well, just about everything. But, it works. Low income earners voting for those who want to keep them, and their kids, poor, scared and desperate.

Anyhoo, this bill will get passed, because Labor, who I vote for, have amazingly said they will support it. I have emailed my local member, for what it's worth, to show my disgust that they would support it. Don't they realize, that if I can get around it, evil doers can too, it achieves nothing, and I just blatant Security Theatre..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Security_theater have a read, it's an actual thing and people fall for it.

Holy apostrophes. I felt like Christopher Walken reading that.

As an older Aussie I find it ironic that we were up in arms when they tried to release the "Australia card" in 85, but are silent as lambs when this gets done, majority of people don't understand tech, that's whats hurting us.

We were in an uproar about an ID card, now we can be tracked, recorded have financial records checked ect and there is bugger all on the news about it....new generations forget what we fought for...so have the politicians for that matter.

Was a great country when the Government ran the railways, gas, water, electricity and banks, no greed involved just where your tax money went, now we pay more taxes for zero return and get shafted by all these private companies, long live capitalism.

If your local grocery store required you to do 100 push ups and run five miles before they allowed you to shop there, then that's totally their right. And it's your right as a consumer to choose to not to business with them.

If they want to create ridiculous and unreasonable barriers to you consuming their product, then that's their prerogative. They just lose you as a customer, but you're not entitled to Game of Thrones.

I've said it before, and I'll say it time and time again;

We have 2 options.
1) National broadband network, cheap legitimate way of acquiring media (netflix), and a 3 strike policy.
-OR-
2) Half-assed copper or no NBN, overpriced satellite/cable (foxtel) being the only way we get films and TV shows, and no piracy policy.

Government pick ONE or the OTHER, but we cannot have a mixture of both!

Yes I know we (AUS) have netflix now, but it currently has bugger all titles.
