The Federal Government's draft encryption bill could seriously damage Australia’s — and international — cyber security and, would act contrary to its stated aim of increasing security for Australians, a submission jointly made by the telco industry body Communications Alliance, the Australian Information Industry Association and the Australian Mobile Telecommunications Association claims.
Global software industry advocate BSA, the software alliance, has urged the Australian Government to include in its encryption bill a judicial oversight and challenge mechanism in order to ensure that any new powers given to law enforcement are not abused.
BSA is "The Software Alliance", the "principal trade association for the world’s most innovative software companies" and while it is famously known for its "compliance programs that promote legal software use", the organisation also "advocates for public policies that foster technology innovation and drive growth in the digital economy".

Victoria has won the dubious distinction of having the highest illegal software usage for the second year running, with the highest number of settlements, but with cases reported in NSW, QLD, SA and WA, too.
