Computer crime law for Australians


So the people in the corporation conglomerate called the 'Australian Government' have put in a so called law that describes you committing a crime with a tool called computer.

The more relevant sections that could apply to most are items 12 and 28.

All you have to do is prove that the CYBERCRIME ACT 2001 NO. 161, 2001 is not a valid Act.

P.S
Don't go to a 'lawyer' they just might tell you that you're on your own, after all they don't really work for you....

Luke 11:52 (New International Version):

"Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering."

With reference to the above mentioned Act:
