Printer maker HP is being investigated by consumer advocacy group Choice over reports the company has breached Australian Consumer Law following reports it issued a firmware update to block consumers using cheaper third-party ink cartridges.
With prices higher in Australia than the US, many think we’re already paying an Australia tax, but Choice says website blocking could make things much worse.
Consumer group Choice says the new copyright code fails to include simple safeguards to stop unfair fines, or ‘speculative invoicing’.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
