I support this Bill, and particularly the provisions creating a new complaints regime.In the first part of this submission, I explain why. In the third part, I make some concluding comments. Why I support the Bill There is plenty of evidence that digital harassment is a problem, and a unique one.I think there are sufficient protections in the Act to stop any unjustified uses of the law to attack legitimate speech.
The Bill contains protections to ensure the powers are not misused.That is particularly so if the amendments in the Bill to the Privacy Act, the Human Rights Act, the Crimes Act and the Harassment Act (which I also support) are passed. The under these laws are not always accessible, sufficient or available.What is needed is a quick and cheap method of obtaining an injunction or take-down order when truly damaging material is posted online. In some cases (such as in criminal cases) there is no take-down power. The principles at the heart of the Bill are designed to reflect the current law.The Agency should be tasked with gathering statistics about cyber-bullying.Clause 8(1)(a): as presently worded, this allows the Agency to consider complaints about any sort of serious emotional distress caused by digital communications, whether or not they breach the principles. Clause 8(2): this allows the Agency to seek and receive information it considers necessary to resolve complaints, etc. Is it intended that this creates an obligation on others to comply with requests for information? The threshold for court intervention Clauses 10(1)(a) and 11(2): to cause serious harm should also be a ground for an injunction.
