IIA Fastracks Industry Copyright Code

The goal of the IIA (Internet Industry Association) is to promote a faster, safer, fairer, more trusted Internet for Australia – and in the wake of the landmark iiNet appeal decision they have announced they would immediately start work on an industry code of practice for internet intermediaries, including ISPs, search, hosting and social media providers.

IIA chief executive, Peter Coroneos explained the basis of the IIA's announcement: "Having closely reviewed the recent decision of the Full Federal Court, we've concluded it's both necessary and appropriate to develop a code of practice to give a range of internet intermediaries greater certainty around their legal rights and obligations. The iiNet case has provided us with welcome guidance on where responsibilities should begin and end, but falls short in defining reasonable steps intermediaries should take in responding to allegations of infringement by their users.

Congratulations to Sarah on her Wedding!

It sure is wedding season here at LaVolta – our own Sarah tied the knot last Saturday.

We sent along our spies Steve and Andrea (well, they were on the guest list) – all reports back were that Sarah looked stunning, and that the food was incredible (A Zumbo cake and macarons – we're jealous!).  Sarah's hubby, Andrew runs the very popular Crabbe Hole at Bondi Icebergs. He's also known for his acting ability appearing in Packed to the Rafters as well as doing star turns with Danny La Rue!

Congratulations Sarah and Andrew and best wishes for the start of your new life together.
