Doxxing and Privacy Reforms

The Law Council of Australia provided a submission to the Attorney-General’s Department in response to its public consultation on doxxing and privacy reforms, with the assistance of the Law Society of New South Wales, the Queensland Law Society, and the Law Institute of Victoria in preparing this submission, in addition to our Business Law Section’s Privacy Law Committee.

The Department has sought responses to the following questions:

  1. Do you think existing measures are sufficient to deal with doxxing?
  2. Do you think that a proposed statutory tort for serious invasions of privacy would improve the available options for individuals who have fallen victim to doxxing by enabling them to seek redress through the courts?
  3. Do you have any suggestions for other options (legislative or non-legislative) to respond to doxxing?

Due to the interrelationship between the consultation questions, this submission will not respond to each question separately. Instead, the remarks will canvass the key issues that the Department seeks to address.
