Less than 2 weeks till submissions close!
Do you have views on how Australian privacy laws should be formulated? The ALRC has been asked to design a right to sue for invasion of privacy, and welcomes your views on a range of proposals and questions. When should public interest trump privacy? Should you be able to record a private conversation without permission? New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom and other countries have all developed legal protection of privacy, with Australia still to follow. This is a chance to influence the future direction of our laws.
We’d like to remind all our stakeholders that submissions in response to the Discussion Paper are due within 2 weeks. We are keen to get as much input as possible, so please use the online form or email your submission (in Word format) to us by Monday 12 May. We are working to an extremely short timeline and will not be able to accept late submissions. Our Final Report is due to the Attorney on 30 June.
We will publish public submissions as they are received and processed. You can view them on our website.
