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 Broadcastingâ€™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 â€śpossible ways forward to address any issues in this area that may start to arise.â€ť
â€śIt is far from clear how the act applies to online content,â€ť says Ms Adams, who also holdsÂ theÂ portfolios of communications, courts and justice.
â€śCurrent 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.â€ť
