Mitch Fifield (Victoria, Liberal Party, Minister for Communications) Share this | Hansard source
There are two different sorts of codes. There are the codes that apply to commercial broadcasters, for which there are penalties, and there are the codes that apply to the public broadcasters, for which there are not penalties. If you apply a code based regime to SBS online activities, that would mean there would be a category of online activity that would not be subject to any penalty. That is a weaker regime, whichever way you look at it.
