Federal Privacy Commissioner: laws overdue for reform
The Age has a profile piece on the Federal Privacy Commissioner Karen Curtis. It confirms that she along with the rest of us thinks Australian privacy laws are a mess. While believing that the laws are ripe for reform, and with the Australian Law Reform Commission not due to report back until 2008, Ms. Curtis "remains a pragmatist. Parliament decides the regime and that's the regime I administer".
