George Brandis contradicts Malcolm Turnbull over piracy crackdown payments

Using the same logic RMS (formerly RTA) should have to pay for crime and drug enforcement because crime and drug users use our roads, RMS must be unwitting facilitators too. Farmers should pay for diabetes management  because the food they produce is consumed by consumers who go on to get diabetes.



Perhaps I should call my local Internet 'Facilitator' and ask for a comment?



George Brandis contradicts Malcolm Turnbull over piracy crackdown payments: "''Obviously ISPs don't want to pay to make a contribution,'' Senator Brandis told The Australian. ''Their argument is that, 'Well, we're the innocent bystander'.

''Well, they're not an innocent bystander because they are an unwitting facilitator. We expect the ISPs to make a contribution to the cost of administrating the scheme. No side in this debate can pretend that it is uninvolved.''"
