"2600 Australia" ist ein loses grüppchen, welches sich
mit computer-sicherheit, elektronischem schnickschnack,
kommunikation und technik im allgemeinen befasst.

2600 Australia would like to announce the public release of its
submission to the Australian Senate Legal and Constitutional Legislation
Commitee inquiry into the provisions of the Cybercrime Bill, 2001.


http://www.2600.org.au/Cybercrime-Submission.pdf (121k)

(This release has been authorised by the Secretary to the Committee as at
24th July, 2001)

Included here is the Executive Summary:

a. 2600 Australia believes the term "cybercrime" is so broadly defined
and so frequently misdefined that legislation such as the Cybercrime
Bill, 2001 will fail to achieve the desired result if only through
failure to address some issues and through the addition of unnecessary
complexity to existing laws.

b. 2600 Australia believes that a number of parts of the Cybercrime Bill,
2001 place in grave danger the robust debate, discussion and
disclosure that the computer security industry relies so heavily upon.

c. 2600 Australia believes that a number of parts of the Cybercrime Bill,
2001 will unintentionally place a significant number of computer
security industry professionals at risk because of poorly defined or
overly broad definitions of certain acts, objects and intentions.

d. 2600 Australia believes that a number of parts of the Cybercrime Bill,
2001 place in grave danger the common law privilege against self
incrimination.

e. 2600 Australia believes that an alternative response to the perceived
threat of "cybercrime" is required, including but not limited to
additional training for law enforcement, more rigorous ACCC scrutiny of
security claims made in respect of products and services and the
formation of a national body to oversee computer security matters.

f. For these reasons and others as discussed below, 2600 Australia canot
support the passage of the Cybercrime Bill, 2001 in its current or any
substantially similar form.
