The Federal Government's encryption law spreads its net far and wide in society, but exempts one class of person — politicians — from its tentacles, according to an analysis of the law by lawyer and consultant Matthew Shearing.
The same fate that befell big data analytics company Splunk last month — having to pull out of doing business in Russia — is likely to be shared by many Australian technology companies in the same or other countries once the Federal Government's encryption law begins to make its presence felt.
If the technology industry in Australia is serious about the concerns it has expressed over the encryption law that was passed in December last year, then it should come together and make repeal of the law an election issue.
