[AusNOG] Dutton decryption bill

Unlike the US which has 4th Amendment rights to privacy, under Westminster
law, there's never been an unqualified right to privacy. Privacy has always
been subject to the rule of law, and the scrutiny of judicial writ. It's
difficult to argue with the intent of the bill, which is to extend judicial
writ to the cyber domain. Crooks, crazies, and creeps, can't claim eminent
domain rights merely because they got to the internet first.

Where there should be examination and criticism is where the proposed
legislation is vague and allows overreach in the use of police powers,
could give rise to unintended consequences, or fails to provide sufficient
safeguards and accountability for the use of those powers.

Kind regards

Paul Wilkins
