This is part of a report from 'The Australian' online on Friday 23 October.

The remainder, which I haven't included due to what AFF says is copyright restrictions, is somewhat more optimistic... link to thread.

The remainder, which I haven't included due to what AFF says is copyright restrictions, is somewhat more optimistic, with Chairman Richard Goyder (marooned in Perth) suggesting that Korea, Taiwan and the Pacific Islands 'could be top travel destinations' if the much talked about 'travel bubbles' became a fact:

Fair enough, but while you won't see it as a justification, publishers rarely if ever initiate civil claims in courts in Australia to enforce.

This law must be broken thousands of times a week in Oz.

Doesn't make the conduct in question any less litigable or the rights of a publisher less enforceable.

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

I for one would hate for AFF to be the test case.
 
The Qantas Premier Platinum Card delivers up to 100k Qantas Points, 75 bonus Status Credits, complimentary lounge invitations and travel insurance. All this with a reduced first-year annual fee of $199.

I'll comply in future, but publishers have far bigger fish to fry, such as convincing (via ACCC or govt generally) Google and Facebook to cough up for content. Then there's the ongoing huge annoyance of News Ltd and 9 Group that their journalists' work is daily 'ripped off' by foreign owned websites such as Daily Mail Australia and The Guardian.

Never underestimate the ability of publishers (or anyone else of their ilk) to chase the little guy. He's far less likely to have a bunch of lawyers available.

I'm confused. Has this thread been created by chopping posts from another? What's the context?

Yes.
Believe was caused by a poster posting an entire (or at least the majority) of an article behind a paywall
(Not that the paywall makes any difference to copyright)
