NBR reports that Amy Adams is taking aim at out-dated censorship laws.
If she was deadly serious she’d move to abolish them altogether.
Archaic classification laws for new media are in the Minister of Broadcasting’s crosshairs.
Following news of the chief censor taking a closer look at the growing video game and online streaming industries, Amy Adams tells NBR ONLINE she has officials from the Ministry of Justice advising her on “possible ways forward to address any issues in this area that may start to arise.”
“It is far from clear how the act applies to online content,” says Ms Adams, who also holds the portfolios of communications, courts and justice.
“Current classification and standards legislation came into effect over 20 years ago so it was inevitable there would come a time when the current regime would need updating.”
