As Australia's site blocking Bill took a step closer to becoming law yesterday, Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull made it extra clear that VPN use won't be a problem under the legislation. Ordering "the big boys" to sort out the VPN issue between themselves, Turnbull told rightsholders to leave consumers alone.
After struggling with the issue of online piracy for many years, last week the Australian parliamentary committee investigating the government's 'pirate' site-blocking Bill gave the legislation the green light.
After Coalition and Labor senators endorsed the Bill with four modifications, it is now guaranteed to become law.
