Submission on the draft Online Safety Bill 2021

Feb 14, 2021

Scarlet Alliance submission on the draft Online Safety Bill 2021 on February 14, 2021.

“We recognise the Bill has multiple components: it administers a complaints system for cyber-bullying targeted at an Australian child; a complaints system for cyber-bullying targeted at an Australian adult; a complaints and objections system for the non-consensual sharing of intimate images; administers an online content scheme; and sets out a framework for basic online safety standards.

In this submission, we limit our comments to (1) discretion, power and oversight, (2) sex worker safety and livelihood, (3) the Online Content Scheme, (4) the Basic Online Safety Expectations and (5) Non-Consensual Intimate Images. We close with a number of recommendations for change to the draft Bill.”
