Inquiry into Social Media and Online Safety
The submission to the House Select Committee on Social Media and Online Safety (Committee) in relation to its Inquiry into Social Media and Online Safety (Inquiry) was prepared by the Law Council of Australia.
The Law Council has noted that an issue of consideration throughout the Committee’s processes has been the Social Media (Anti-Trolling) Bill 2022 (Cth) (the Bill) (and its prior Exposure Draft) and what impact, if any, this may have for social media users.
Given the extended period provided to make submissions, the Law Council has opted to provide this submission in the event that it is of assistance to the Committee in any consideration of the Bill. This submission is substantially similar to the Law Council’s submission to the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Legislation Committee’s concurrent inquiry into the Bill.
